Finished these socks a few days ago and fulled them for about 9 minutes in hot water in the washing machine. I had knitted them about 10% longer than my foot, so as to have some room for shrinkage. My idea was that if I fulled handspun sock yarn, it would tighten up and the socks would be more durable.
ONe of the socks has beads and the other doesn't.
We'll see if they last longer. I gave them to my sister and asked her to let me know about their durability.
