Those are nice. Oddly enough, I prefer solid colors for socks.
LOL on Sasquatch!
For me, it depends on the sort of sock and who I'm making them for.
Lace patterned or cabled socks - solids absolutely. If I'm taking the time to work those patterns I want them to be the focus. Socks for someone else, I always take their druthers into account.
But socks I knit for myself in stockinette, the wilder the colors the better.
As a young'un I fell in love with striped toe socks when they came out, and went on to develop something of a fetish for wacky sock & shoes.
I have to admit, I was somewhat disappointed when my "Wicked Witch" arrived - the colors were much darker and don't "pop" like in the photos. But it has a scrumptious feel, and at least I'll have some luxury fiber socks that should wear reasonably well.
