It turns out that "Twist" isn't just the name of this colorway, it's also the way the yarn knits up in a sock. For the most part it twisted around the leg of the sock, similar to the way stripes wrap around a barber pole - more on one sock than the other. The feet turned out quite differently from each other. It makes the socks more interesting. In order to emphasize the twist, I worked a twisted rib pattern on the legs.
and on the other side, quite different:
