Game Day Socks

Thanks to the magic powers of Ravelry I found a indie dyer from Montreal called Biscotte & Cie that sells self striping sock yarn in the Canadiens colours in a colour-way called "Go Habs Go". Well I had to have a skein, so I ordered one of the said colourway. They are either going to be my game day socks or my running socks. Possibly both. The yarn is a wool, bamboo and nylon mix so they should be lovely long-wearing socks and I am really enjoying knitting with the yarn. They are fairly plain socks as I did not want to interfer with the striping too much. These are also a great shove in the bag and go project. I don't have to many of those on the needles right now. It is also the first time I am using my Knit Picks dpns.
I'm starting to think I may need a hockey sweater to match them. What do you think?

I love the idea of team colours! I wish I could find some red and white striping yarn for Boston Red Sox socks!!
