Striped socks

I finished these socks just in time for a heatwave. I only put them on for the picture.
Pattern: Sock Recipe: A Good, Plain Sock by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett, colorway 4253
Needles: size 2
Thoughts: Self-striping yarns are so much fun to work with, but the results leave me feeling a bit disappointed. Certainly I'll wear them, but on the whole I prefer solid or mostly solid sock yarns. The Yarn Harlot's recipe is great since it really made me think about the construction of a sock. I'm especially proud of the heel I did this time.
