Your favorite colors?
Pink, red, green, blue, turquoise, yellow. I really like any Spring/Summer colors. I am not real fond of brown or purple but I do like lavender.

Preferred yarn weight (Fingering, Sport, DK, maybe even Worsted)?
None, I have favorite patterns like to work with all these yarns.

Do you prefer solid or multicolored yarn?
Solid addition: if my pal can do self striping I would rather have that over solid. But whatever is easiest will be fine :)

If your buddy is able to do so, would you like a variegated, self-striping, or self-patterning yarn?
I LOVE love of the self-striping yarns that I seen on various blogs.
