I purchased this vibrant skein of yarn a couple of months ago from a wonderful new local yarn shop. It's definitely not my usual color choice. I often stick to more neutral and muted tones. But this particular skein of yarn is going to be used to make at hat for a dear friend who loves bright neon colors. I've actually really enjoyed knitting with the colorful yarn. All the variation in color makes the simple garter stitch quite exciting. Making this hat with any other skein in my stash would have been rather tedious.
