Color Affliction

I know I can't be the only one feeling obsessive about the Color Affection -- or as I call it, Color Affliction -- pattern. I look at the finished projects almost every day on Ravelry, thinking about all the possible color combinations.

Because this is the New Austerity, I cannot buy new yarn for the shawl. I shopped the stash came up with this:


From left to right, Tess Supersock, Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight in Winter Solstice, and Miss Babs Windsor Sock in Field Mouse.

Thoughts? I'm wondering if the gray and the brown are too close together. I will twist them together and see. Lisa has suggested an orange in place of the brown, which would pop more, but also "de-neutralize" the finished piece.

See why I call this Color Affliction?

I think the blue works with either one, but I think the browns are a little too close together.
