Need some help

I have started a new pair of socks. I love this yarn, the muted colors are absolutely lovely, and it is creating a very nice color pattern. I started doing a BasketWeave knit on the top of the foot, but I'm not sure if this is a waste of my time. Is it getting lost in the colorway? Am I loosing the overall effects of the colors by adding a texture? Or does it look fine, keep going. Hubby likes the BasketWeave and says keep going, but I also wanted your opinions. Thanks.

Sock on the right has the BasketWeave, and sock on the left is flipped over to the sole, showing no knitted texture.

Pattern: mSKS Six Stitch Basket Weave (page 90)

Yarn:"marks & kattens" clown 1854

Needle: one circular 2.25mm Hiya Hiya

Started: August 16th

Great Yarn! I thin your pattern may be lost in all the color changes, though. I guess it depends on whether it shows up better in person or not. In the photo, the pattern doesn't stand out much at all.

Hello! Thank you for the compliments on my sock pictures. I'm so glad I got them done!

The Broad Spiral Ribbing is from More Sensational Knitted Socks. I think it's one of the Six stitch patterns. It's got a cabled look, but it's not as time consuming. I really liked working it.
