Over the past few months, I’ve focused on spinning yarn specifically to use in my circular sock knitting machine (CSM). Spinning and swatching with different handspun yarns has led me to make observations and conclusions about using handspun yarn in a CSM.
I’ve compiled all of the details about how I spin and crank my socks into a downloadable ‘Knitting CSM Socks with Handspun‘ PDF guide, including notes about my handspun yarn, CSM cylinder comparison, links to supplies, tools and more.
