What advice would you give someone starting this project? give yourself extra time when creating your own color scheme and pattern sequencing because the colors may appear different than expected when combined. this was a gauge and a color swatch to see how the various colors looked when used as background, accents, or as the key design. I plan to make a skirt using some of the colors and patterns from this sock.
