I learned a valuable lesson knitting these socks, which was not to incorporate a raised pattern (i.e. seed stitch, cabling, etc.) into self striping yarn, but they're knitted with a German superwash wool called Online garne, still have to block 'em but that's coming up next. So far they're really warm to wear, will find out more after I block.

Those are beautiful!
Can't you just wash them rather than blocking since it's a washable yarn?

I probably could, but the last time I washed something, immediately after knitting it, it unravelled. Don't know if it was just coincidence, but I'll probably step it up to a washing in a bit.
