Oh, that yarn is gorgeous! You know I'm a super beginner, and have never done socks, so I don't know what pattern would be appropriate for such a wonderful yarn. But, I like this pattern in general.

If I do win the yarn, maybe you could help me choose a pattern!

Ooops! It didn't post the link. Here it is:

I bought some as well! I can't wait to knit with it.

Unfortunately, it is still at the PO since they are only open the hours I work..so, I'm TRYING to be patient until Saturday. (unless I can think of a good excuse to get out of work early!)

Hmmm probably poppy socks since they've been in my queue for awhile!

I'm horrible at planning ahead, so if I win please don't hold me to this, but the pattern that comes to mind for me is Mad Color Weave (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mad-color-weave).

I think this colorway would look gorgeous in River Rapids socks (pattern link: http://files.blog-city.com/files/aa/3830/b/river_rapids.pdf ). They'd be a stretch for me, since I've only done a very plain sock pattern so far, but I'm ready for the challenge. Here's a Ravelry link showing the same pattern in a variety of colors: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/river-rapids-socks .

Oh, what lovely colors. Thanks for the giveaway! I would knit Twinkle sweater for my child.

Oooh, that's some pretty yarn!

I think I'd knit the Monkey sock by Cookie A. because it is one of the first patterns I printed when I began knitting a few years ago and I still have yet to make them.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I would like some free awesome sock yarn - being a sock-yarn-a-holic, a free fix is pure joy. :)

This sounds very boring, but if I were making socks from this yarn I would make a "plain vanilla" sock with ribbed legs. I think that would show off the colors really nicely, and the ribbing would add lots of stretch for good fit.

What a lovely yarn! I'd love to win it. Thank you for the opportunity.

what a wonderful giveaway!

i'd knit some anklets for my mom--she's allergic to wool, but hand knit socks would be great for her feet, and the amy colourway includes some of her favourite colours!

thanks for the opportunity to win :)

I'd love to be able to make myself an Emily Shawl - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/emily-shawl

I made one for a friend's b-day present and it is so pretty!

Wow! How lovely! They would make excellent socks for my wool-sensitive mom :)

Oooh, I think this yarn would be perfect for the Interlocking Leaves Socks (and the pattern is appropriately sourced, too!) http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall08/PATTinterlockingleaves.html

What a generous giveaway! I would want to hoard this for myself. ;0)

This is the pattern I would use http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/quincy-quade-quentin-a-very-memorable-monster

How cute would that monster be?

Ooh, I have been dying to do this pattern from Knitty: http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall08/PATTinterlockingleaves.html Interlocking Leaves socks. I'm sure those colors would be great!

So pretty! I didn't realize they were doing it in the handpainted colors.

I've been wanting to try Sock Candy for ages. If I won the skein of the Singer colourway, I would make Skew.

That colorway screams shawl to me. I think it'd be lovely as an Argante:

Happy blog-a-versary!

I think it would make a terrific Simple Yet Effective Shawl: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/simple-yet-effective-shawl-fingering-weight

That yarn is beautiful and all I can say is that they must become socks. I think the blue/green colorway would look amazing as Blackrose socks:

Happy blog-a-versary!

I've been trying my hand at design recently... I would love to write a good lace pattern to show off those colors :D

Beautiful yarn in such vivid colors! I'm not a sock-knitter but love small projects the likes of baby hats and neck-warmers. Which would be extra-special made with this hand-painted yarn.

That yarn, These socks.. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dragonfly-socks#
