Cedar Creekin Complete

posted by Wool Girl.....

Finally, I have finished the Cedar Creeks I had started out to finish two month ago. Finally I am able to wear them, and love them dearly. They fit like a charm, and I'm very pleased with the way they came out. Striping seems to be pretty similar on both socks. Used size 1 dp's, and followed the sizing for the smaller sock. Have decided that I may even use this pattern for another pair of socks, so will post on that in the future.

Here they are, making their public appearance:

Also, I wanted to make a note about NK's Fairground socks, that I personally held in my hands today and googled over. They are lovely, just lovely! NK, you rock!

Wow, what great stripes! I'm starting over again on mine, did you do a short row heel, or ....? it looks great whatever it is, so nicely mitered! and such even stripes, I need your advice!

To Ruth:
Yes, I did the short row heel on these - used size 1 needles throughout. This seems to produce the best striping. Email me if you have any additional questions:

Best of luck!
