Unintended Design

I was inspired by this color combination by Bee Mice Elf

So I dyed the yarn and the colors were close, but not quite. Light brown is one of the most difficult color to obtain so I got a russet instead of brown. I like the horizontal random stripes on the leg but hate the color pooling on the feet. The ribbing on the foot slightly changes the knitting tension and socks end up having different pattern on the leg and the foot. Well, at least the socks match.
