So... Over the weekend I got a book on Naalbinding, because the Pict who has everything does NOT appear to have appropriate naalbound socks for her persona. Thus... I've decided to teach myself how to naalbind and make her a pair of socks in the next week...

This is the sock we're aiming for... I like working with pictures of extant items. I am using a different stitch called the "mammen stitch" that was used for a couple of mittens found in digs for earlier periods. I think I may have used a different heel construction, too, but since half the heel is MISSING on the extant sock it's a little difficult to tell from the picture. All things considered, though, I think my project is coming along rather well, for an idiot who's never done this before...

Please note that our favorite Pict cannot see this entry, so I'd appreciate it if you didn't spoil the surprise. ;-)
