Handspun and knit socks can be a joy to wear. Understanding how fiber, yarn design, and knitted gauge intersect will help you create socks that feel better and last longer. We will spin a variety of fibers, talk about how to make the best use of each fiber's unique characteristics, and how preparation impacts the yarns we make. Bring your needles, try a few unusual cast-ons, and learn some creative mending techniques.
