A New Sock

I cast on for a new pair of socks.  This is Twisted (which I think I began once before and then frogged for some reason), knit in Socks That Rock Lightweight in It's a Supernatural Thing.  I usually work Socks That Rock in a plain vanilla stockinette, but I'm trying something different on these.  I'm not quite sure that I'm loving this pattern with this yarn, but the farther I get, the more I'm liking it.  I'll try another inch or so and decide.  It's possible that Twisted would be happier in a more subtle colorway.

OK, it's official, over the course of writing the paragraph above, I've decided to frog and redo this into a plain vanilla stockinette pattern.  Socks That Rock tend to spiral on me (versus a true self striping), but the purl stitch background and the slipped stitch foreground are just breaking up the colors too much.  I'm glad we had this talk.  Sometimes it helps to just think something through out loud, right?  Hopefully the third time will be the charm with this pattern!
