A Tale of Two Gussets

I finished my ninth pair of socks from Rachel Coopey's Discworld sock club this week. These are for Leon, and they are called Ook. Named after the Librarian at the Unseen University, the yarn was a perfect match for a sock named for an orangutan. Knit in Cascade Heritage, they were delightful. Portable, fun, easy to memorise, a fabulous yarn and pattern match.
 I only have one observation, and its about me as a knitter. For the first sock  (on the right above, on the left below) I picked up the stitches, and they were not very nice. They are structurally sound, but a bit wonky and not nice looking.
For the second sock I picked up the stitches and twisted them at the same time, and look how much nicer they are. A neat row of perfect stitches.
And now a final picture of the back of these lovely socks:
