Red Sky Socks

I just finished up my Red Sky socks. 

This yarn is "Diversity" from the Plymouth Yarn Company, Inc., and they call this color way "Red Sky." 

When I was first making these socks, the shades of pink, red, and purple had me thinking of Valentine's Day. 

But by the time I was finishing up these socks, I was thinking of the old adage that goes like this:

Red sky at night, sailor's delight.
Red sky in morning, sailor's warning.

Next think I knew, I was talking like a pirate.

Shiver me timbers!
Walk that plank!
Ahoy, Matey!
Thar she blows!
Yo Ho Ho... and a bottle of rum!

Did I tell you before my mind wanders too much when I knit socks?!

I am pretty happy with the fit of these socks.  The manner in which the yarn pooled is pretty awesome.  It also kind of reminds me of tie dye.

I cast on another pair of socks just as soon as I finished these socks.  I'll share more about the latest socks sometime very soon.
