Advice Wanted

Okay can I have some opinions here? These are for my Ravenclaw Hogwarts Sock Swap pal. I started these off normally but the pooling was driving me crazy (see below, right). Basically if I decided to do nothing then one whole side of each leg would be darker than the other. So I introduced a second strand and alternated each round (see below, left).Now would I be crazy to go make an incision, rip back from to the cuff (a la sock surgery) and then do some voodoo to put it all back together again? Or since this is only 1.5"/4cm (unstretched) should I just shrug and call it a day? If it was at the toes I think I could leave it without a second thought. At the top of the sock however...

It looked like the sun was casting a shadow to me... And, since I'm lazy, I'd probably shrug and call it done. :)

I like them. I think it gives them character. :)

I'd probably do sock surgery, but that's because I'm obsessive. ;)

I can see why it would bother you, but I have to be honest, I couldn't imagine doing the sock surgery so I would leave them and fall in love with them for what they are :-)

Another vote for leaving them. I think they're pretty as they are and the idea of doing sock surgery would give me a case if the willies I'd never get over!
