Spoke noises

Once you have adjusted the tension of the spokes on your rim, do you get a few creaking noises from them when you ride? I do, i just assume its the spokes getting into place (so to speak). Or is it something far worse?

The bikes new the spokes are settling in. Don't worry about it and take the bike back to the LBS when they told you to for the minor "break in" adjustments

everytime I set my spokes they creak as the set in. I chalk it up to the spokes used to a certain bend/tension and creaking for the force. No biggy
