What to do, what to do?

Not a whole lot of knitting going on here lately. I don't know if it is the weather which is a whopping 90+ degrees or if it is the lack of interest in my latest WIP, which is a pair of socks in a self striping yarn.

I have actually frogged the socks three times trying three different stitch patterns, one of the times I frogged I was at the cuff of both of the socks before I realized that I couldn't quite pull them over the ankels...ugh!

I am going to ask for an opinion from you. What do you think of this stitch pattern? Does the yarn take away from the stitch pattern? Should I suck it up and frog again and do the sock in a plane stockinette stitch?

I just don't know.

Before I even saw you were asking for an opinion, I thought, "ooooh, pretty socks!" Maybe a little bit of the lace detail is lost in the striping, BUT you definitely can see it's lace AND the lace is making the stripes into lovely scallops. I like 'em. I vote keep going.

I like then too, I have been searching for a lace/pattern that I could use for some dark variegated yarn, it is hard to find something isn't it!
