Crochet Socks

Sock production has certainly gone down, but I'm still slowly cranking them out.

I ran short of the main colour, so I added in some blue from my stash of scraps. I think the blue would have looked better as heels and toes, but (a) that would have meant starting the socks from scratch, and (b) the heels and toes have a reinforcing thread that matches the main yarn, not the blue. (Not that I made sure to line the patterns up, but it still would have looked more noticeable with the blue.)

What's your opinion on the blue?

I like the blue - gives it an interesting cuff appearance!
