Yarn Dominance?

In response to my Estonian Socks, nova asked, "Did you play around with color dominance in the cuffs? I like the effect." It made me look at the photo again--oh the things we notice through the lens--and what do you know? Those socks don't look alike at all. I thought about it all day at work. I don't think I changed hands so why are my socks so different? I think the answer is "one year of experience." It's fair to say I've done a bit of knitting in the last year. And during that time my continental knitting has improved a lot. The sock on the left has loose, flabby stitches. The sock on the right is crisp and clear. The difference is really dramatic.
