Cedar Creek socks II

100_1644The second pair of Cedar Creek socks are done!  I finished them last night, despite sitting on one of my needles and busting it in half.  I hate it when that happens.  They are quite crazy in the pooling department, but I do like them that way.  I could have avoided the pooling if I had realized that I was knitting with 68 stitches on the foot, instead of the 64 it should have been.  They are also on a size bigger needle than my first pair, I don’t know how much that has to do with it though. I didn’t figure out my screw-up until I was done with the first sock, duh.  Anyway, official stats:100_1645

  • Pattern – Cedar Creek socks by Kaci Kyler Hays
  • Yarn – STR in the Red Rock colorway
  • Needles – US Size 2 CP dpns
  • Took me – about a month and a half
  • Comments – What’s not to love?!  Socks That Rock, yes they are!

So now that those are done, I’ve cast-on for the second sock of this pair, and my plan is to finish up the rest of those halfpairs that I was using in my dyeing experiments.  Then it’s on to the second Elanora sock, and by that time I should be all socked out!  I need to start spinning again and get the rest of the yarn for The Baby’s Darling coat done before it isn’t even cold anymore.  Yeah, that would be nice.
