More Jawoll!

My toes are cold. I finished those awesome Arne and Carlos socks and gave them away to my lucky mother. Now I want some socks for me! Fortunately, the Lang Yarns Jawoll is restocked.
I'll need two skeins for a pair for myself, and I'm leaning toward the marled/tweed look. But maybe with bright, contrasting toes and heels and ribbing. Decisions, decisions.
Each skein comes with a little spool of reinforcing tread for the heels and toes. I have never worked with this sock yarn before, but it looks pretty sturdy. Do you all have any experience with how it knits and wears? I'll let you know what I think.
