Midnight Passion

Hi everyone! :) I've never posted here, but I've been part of the KAL for a few months. I've finally gotten the courage to cast-on again for a colorway that I've been a little iffy about. I started this a while ago and had to frog it because I was pulling too tightly on the right side. I'm using Claudia Hand Painted Yarns (fingering weight) in Purple Midnight and Passion Fruit colorways. While I love the yarns independent of each other (and think that both would make fabulous socks!), I am still unsure of the two together. Actually, I do love the blues, reds, and purples. The only thing that I don't like is the tan. Passion Fruit has some tan in it, but it didn't seem to be much when it was in the skein or cake. However, now that it's knitting up, there's a little too much of it for my taste. I'm going to continue on, though. If I end up still not liking it once it's done, I'm sure that my uncle (yes, my uncle!) would love the combination of colors. He just loves really bright colors. Anyhoo - anyone can throw in their two cents if they have any ideas. :)
