Thanks everyone!!

I think this is the perfect pattern to try colorwork in socks...you are using a sport weight yarn and larger needles... so it goes faster...you are also just dealing with the snowflake chart...Usually I carry both yarns in my left hand and I really have to watch the tightness of the sock...this time I made myself carry the yarn in the right/left hand...I didn't have any trouble with the socks being to tight and not wanting to go on...it was also faster for me...(prolly cause I didn't have to keep ripping the sock back so I could wear it )
Here is a helpful site on that...
