Pattern found, but color?

I found the pattern I'm going to use for my Sock Pal.

Little Child's Sock (links to an image on flickr) from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush.

My pal doesn't like lace, and I don't want to do plain stockinette stitch.

I plan on dying the yarn for my sock pal. She loves color, so I can do whatever I want.

So, should I do a solid color? Different shades of the same color? Multi colors?

Which colors?

This is the problem with not giving any specifics. I'm guilty of this for my pal. I said to do whatever. I guess for me, I sort of want my pal to use her/his favorite colors. Sort of putting their mark on the socks they knit for me.

And just so it's not a pictureless entry:

That's a very nice pattern for someone who wants a little something pretty but no lace. It looks awesome in a solid color! And I bet your pal thought the same way you did about not specifying the color: whatever you'd like to do is great!

Great pattern! It looks like you really found a sock that matches her preferences. I think the stitch definition will be better with a solid (or semi-solid) yarn. Those socks are going to be great!

This is a great pattern. I was tempted myself but decided on a snowflake pattern. I think it's a great choice.

For that pattern I would also go with a solid or semi-solid color. My pal also likes color, so I just picked something I liked.

Oh, you just made this SO easy.

I was about to email you and ask you what you wanted for your socks in some more detail, but now, I know just what to do. :)

Hope you love them!
