Socks and the people who love them

It's an absolutely gorgeous fall day outside, bright, crisp, leafy, clear and warm. I really don't want to be inside today.

I've been messing about with my new sock yarn, some Socks that Rock medium weight in a colorway "Rooster Rock". I really liked it in the skein. I do not like it so much knitted up:

The colors remind of an unfortunate 70s afghan in a color combination that I particularly dislike.

Guess I will have to overdye the sucker. Blue? Red? Turquoisey-green?
Sigh. I am not cool enough for 70s retro color combos.

Maybe you'd like it better in a different pattern.

If you must overdye I vote red. Definately. But I kind of like the colorway. Maybe if you did a little more? Just a shot in the dark.

Hmm. It's on the back burner for now. Sigh. I really liked it skeined up.
