Laying them down on was the only way I could get the light right to show anything at all. When I was knitting the first sock I was a bit unhappy with the color pooling, but when both socks were finished, the pooling swirled from one sock to the other in a pretty nifty pattern.
I made a huge mistake reading the pattern, but finally got it straightened out (see here).
Love the socks! Thanks Anni.
