Dusk to Dawn Striped Socks

Stripe Socks--Dusk to Dawn with Malabrigo and Koigiu left overs
One of my favorite things to do is watch the skies after the sunset at the Pacific Coast.  People come out and stroll along the beach just before.  Some set up their beach chairs and wrapped themselves up in blankets (or each other.)  Once the sun sets people leave.  They turn their backs and head back to their cars and leave.  Yet if you give yourself 10 more minutes the skies deepen to summer hot fuchsias melting into lilacs and back again to shimmering golds.  The ocean breeze seems to stop as if drawing in its breath.  The day's turquoise water takes on a saturated tone of midnight blue with splashes of moonlight silver. I finished the cable and lace socks.  I am writing the pattern and will post it in a couple of days.
