Here is the spiral striped sock, as of Friday. I've since finished the heel flap and am now on to the foot, and it's evident that this sock (while lovely) will be too big for a newborn. That's okay - I'll save it. But I'm back to thinking that the "ridiculously tiny sock" might be pretty close to just-born size feet, and wishing I'd made the second one.
I think I'll finish this one, and then start on a second "ridiculously tiny" sock.
