The first of three live sessions for the Rathtrevor Socks Knit-Along was a spirited conversation about sock yarns, hosted by designer (and our editorial director) Kate Atherley with special guest Catherine Knutsson of The Small Bird Workshop, maker of the Barn Swallow sock yarn featured in the pattern.

We were so deep in conversation about socks and yarns and wool that we forgot to mention a special coupon we’ve created to celebrate the knit-along! Use the code RATHTREVOR at checkout for 10% off your first year of Studio Membership. Studio Members have access to all of the patterns and tutorials we publish, and are invited to join us for our monthly virtual Studio Hours, which are quite a lot like the KAL session below, but with a different focus each month, and show-and-tell. As a fully member-supported online magazine, our paid members make everything we do possible.

Without further ado, here’s the recording, and scroll down to find the links saved from the text chat!

Watch to learn about breed-specific wool characteristics, why Kate designed the Rathtrevor socks the way she did, why you should always wear slippers over your socks at home, how to avoid ladders between your needles when knitting in the round, and to hear Kate’s so-called “dirty secret” about making socks.
