Warning, socks may be hazardous to your health

Sunglasses at the ready? Don't say I didn't warn you, they're a little on the bright side. I really can't decide whether I like these socks or not. On the one hand, the Jitterbug is absolutely lovely to knit with on the other, they are VERY bright. Yes I know I chose the yarn. Actually I still love the colourway, I'm just not entirely sure it's going to work fully as a sock, maybe it's just this pattern? The colour is actually laying itself down in a rather attractive spiral pattern which was totally unexpected. I'm just a little worried that when I come to turn the heel, it's going to all go horribly wrong as the spiral is going to be interrupted. Well, the leg's almost the right length now so I might go ahead and do it anyway and see how it turns out.
The other thing is, I tried it on and it's coming up a little tight for me. I could be knitting a pair of socks that don't fit. Grr. So, sis, you of the skinny ankles, like the colour?
