I have such mixed feelings about this pair of socks...
They fit well.
The yarn, Knit Picks Sock Landscape in Rocky Mountain Dusk, is warm and thick.
The pattern, Express Lane, was fun to knit.
If the colors had to do something obnoxious, at least they did the same thing on both socks.
The yarn flashed and pooled and did obnoxious things.
All of that flashing and pooling completely hides the pretty stitch pattern (which says that it's good for multicolored yarns and has plenty of pretty pictures on Ravelry to prove that it's true.)
There were three badly spliced spots in the first skein and one in the second.
