I made another hat. This one's for Aicha. I was looking for a certain kind of pink shade which the usual yarn brands, Monaco and Red Heart, didn't have. When Eds had her baby shower (she recently had her baby, God bless them both!), she bought this bulky and shiny yarn, which I haven't seen before. She said there were other brands available if you know where to look. The one used for this hat is the Familia yarn. I love that it's more stretchable, but heavier too. The Familia yarn, unfortunately, is harder to find. And where it's sold, there's not a lot of stock. I was lucky the pink yarn I bought was enough.
