I used the February STR club yarn for my pal; the colors are perfect as is the weight of the yarn. I'm using the Waffle Rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks. Here's the finished first sock:
Do you see the problem? The colors are striping beautifully on the cuff and the foot. I don't even mind the way it's pooling on the gusset. But look at the big chunk of grey on the front.
I need some opinions; would you frog back and do an afterthought heel in order to keep the striping, or would you leave it as is? If you were my pal, would you mind the blob of color on the front? It's still early enough that I could rip and reknit.
What would you do?
