My sister loves bright colors and the socks I make for her so I would make socks for my sister!


My initial response to that question would be "me!" I think I will stick with that. Socks definitely.


I am pregnant (finally! after 5 years of trying!) and my baby-to-be is definitely knitworthy! I would make a hat for him/her using the Charlie's Sock Yarn Hat pattern by Aimee Alexander. It would look great with neon colors!


My sister would love this! I am thinking a hat and a few stripes in mittens. My son might fight for it though. I have been eyeing this yarn for a while now.


A hat and a pair of fingerless gloves for my beautiful Emily.


My daughter loves neon socks and so does her boyfriend!

I am the director of a mission project that assists low income people. Last fall I started a knitting group there to help some of our low income clients learn to knit. When one of my friends heard about it she volunteered to drive 50 miles round trip to help me teach these folks to knit. Through this horrible winter she made the drive every week. She is a patient and kind teacher. She has knitted me countless pairs of socks, thought she rarely knits for herself. I would knit her socks with this yarn because she walks daily. The brightness would cheer her on her walks on dreary days and would keep her toes warm as well.

Judi Kennedy

Socks for my granddaughter. She loves funky things and I believe this will qualify. She also loves hand knit socks.

What beautiful yarn! I would use it to make socks for my beautiful daughter-in-law Iris who is having a rough year and who loves the socks I have made for her (she has cold feet all of the time). Her favorite color is neon lime green so this yarn would be perfect for her.

Mary Anne

I would knit a pair of socks for my mom, who joyously and patiently taught me how to knit socks. :)

April G

My best friend Carmen is a sock collector. She loves all things bright.


I would make socks for my husband , who loves to wear funny socks with his suits (like Booth in the Bones TV show)


I'd knit a pair of socks for my son. He loves the socks I make him and the brighter and wilder the color the more he likes them. The leftover yarn would knit up into a tiny pair for his 1 year old niece. They love wearing matching socks.


Socks for the person who appreciates them most - me!


My husband would love socks our of this. He loves stripe socks, the crazier the better.

Socks for me. Would love to knit myself a pair of socks from this brightly colored yarn.


My great nephew, off to college in the fall, is totally a hat guy. You should see him in his Cat Bhordi tendril hat! He would totally love a neon hat - or socks. I would love socks to wear with jeans and Birks as well so it would be a hard call.


I would knit beautiful bright socks for my two granddaughters. They'd adore the bright colors!

Joanne Brown

Probably a fun scarf


I think my "baby" sister would enjoy a colorful scarf. She lives where snow is measured by the foot, not the inch!! It might be the item to make a bright spot in the all white landscape!!


Socks for my friend who loves bright fluorescent footwear!


With being a new grammie of two little boys Quinn (just turned 1) and Landon who's (6 months old) I would make socks so they could use them with there Rain boots so they can run through the puddles and be two little boys.

I'd make socks for my sister...after I made a pair of socks for her several years ago the only socks she'll wear are ones I make!

Peggie Bouvier
