For my next pair of socks, I'd like to find some yarn to remind me of this beautiful sunset

my flamingo socks
I'm knitting a pair of socks, well really just one at a time but eventually there will be two. The yarn is called pink flamingo, which reminds me of Florida. We traveled along the gulf coast of Florida this last fall and the beaches were amazingly beautiful. We saw pink flamingos at the sunken gardens in Sarasota, and pink billed birds of some kind on Sanibel Island. This picture doesn't do the colors of the bird justice; they are very pretty and very pink. Florida was much nicer than I thought it would be; surprisingly affordable, beautiful scenery, and the beaches are very clean and pristine. We also saw some alligators ( I was sitting safely in the car while Eddie ventured out to get this picture. Fortunately this guy was pretty slow and not interested in a snack at this time so we were able to get a nice picture of him.
