This Yarn is NOT Behaving

Maybe my projects are all conspiring against me... 

Express Lane Socks in Rocky Mountain Dusk

The yarn is pooling and striping and you can't see  the stitch pattern much at all. But the yarn is also thick and will keep my toes warm and at this point it makes just as much sense to keep going in the simple stitch pattern as it does to rip them out and start over again in stockinette.

There's a pair of socks on Ravelry that uses the same exact pattern and yarn. It's what convinced me to cast on for this pattern in the first place. That pair, unlike mine, doesn't have any of this ridiculous pooling and flashing.

I didn't get very caught up in Haunted is Always in Fashion, the latest Haunted Vintage Mystery by Rose Pressey. The situation with Cookie's psychic cat is getting more interesting and I think I'll read the next book to find out what happens with that, but the mystery itself wasn't particularly exciting.

It is cute yarn! Purple socks that keep your feet warm are a winner in my opinion, however they pool.

Can you explain pooling and flashing ?
Thank you

I totally agree with Kathy. Purple socks can do whatever they want and I would wear them regardless. These are such a pretty shade of purples too.
