    Nice idea but it will not protect you. Socks basically are knitted fabric and with a knit comes holes no matter how small. Not sure if this suggestion will work but line the inside with fusible non woven interfacing. It is still far from perfect but better than just the sock. Thank you for sharing your idea and process.
