Need help with probability

 

My sock drawer contains two red socks, two white socks, and two blue socks.  For three days in a row, I pull out two socks out of my sock drawer at random.  What is the probability that I get matching socks on all three days?

First off, the chances of getting any red sock is a 1/3 chance because there are 2 red socks and 6 socks in total. If you were to pull to random socks, every day for 3 days, the chances of you getting matching pairs for alll of the days is a 1/5832 chance.

I think. I'm not that smart.
