High Contrast

I finished the blue and white socks, and design wise I should have either continued the the leg pattern stitch down the top of the foot or gone with plain stockinette. That little motif is just not strong enough to stand up to the high contract stripes.

But they are a functional pair of socks, which is a good thing. Several old pairs have worn through (some of them already mended once), so the sock drawer was needing replenishment.

I don't know where you get all of your ideas, and the patience to work them out and knit them! I see what you mean about the pattern not popping, though I bet those socks would look awesome in a semi-solid.
