So at this point, I have two proto-socks, which I work on alternately, as Shelagh Lewins suggests on her page about nalbinding socks. What I have, right now, are two curved pieces of nalbinding, each about the size of my (rather small) fist. They still show plenty of holes and missed (or misplaced ) stitches, but they also have plenty of good areas, and are noticeably growing in size. They are also a bit big for my feet, wide though my feet are, but I figure that shrinking them when finished is a more viable option than stretching a too-small sock over my (usually) achy feet.
When they look a bit more sock-like, I may photograph them again for this blog.
