Harry Potter Socks....Tonks style

I am **** LOVING**** the colorway of this yarn! I fell in love with the colors at my LYS, and couldn't wait for all my knitted gifts to be done so I could cast on my socks. I started last night and have almost 2/3 of the first sock done!
Aren't these colors pretty!

If I can ask a really stupid question on this years old post, does the sock just 'knit itself' into that really cool design with those stripes and little colors? Because it looks like a pattern you would have to hand stitch, and yet I see that you used a multicolor thread to knit it.

The yarn is a self striping/pattering yarn. You just knit and the pattern appears! So much fun!

I can't even comprehend how this works. Those perfect little designs that look almost like a "Fair Ilse" design just appear when you knit? Did you have to follow a rigid set of instruction and stick to a certain gauge to get this to come out so well? And may I say, bravo!
