FO: Cedar Creek socks in Creatively Dyed Yarn

August 20th, 2009

Cedar Creek donePattern: Cedar Creek
Yarn: Creatively Dyed “Calypso” in colorway Mabolo
Needles: US size 0 (2mm) for foot and leg, US size 1 (2.25mm) for heel flap
Ravelry project page

Notes:This is one sturdy heel flap. They have you slipping stitches every row instead of every other, which is what I was used to. It’s an easy pattern to memorize but still requires some attention, making it good “on the go” knitting. If I had it to do over again I would have done a 1×1 ribbed cuff instead of the picot edge called for.

The yarn bled a little bit of blue but not much in its after-knitting soak. The skein is 500 yards and I’ve got plenty left. There’s no pooling or flashing, but the leg of one sock is noticeably darker than the other. Must have just been a darker patch which occurred during the dyeing process.

I have wide feet, but I’m usually a loose knitter so I didn’t increase from the called-for 60 to the 64 my gut said I should be using for the foot. They’re a little snugger than perhaps they should be. The pattern was clearly written and included a chart for the 12-stitch 4-row repeat. Like I say, it didn’t take long to get it down pat. I’d make these again.
