The Women's March on Washington D.C. asked all its participants to knit and wear the Pussy Hats.
Many of the 200 or more marches around the country have adopted the Pussy Project.
Organizers for the Womxn's March on Seattle say that they are not officially part of the Pussy Project but expect to see hundreds of local women wearing their hats.
There is an internet rumor, which may be true, that pink yarn has sold out around the country. Locally, Mad Cow Yard in Lake Forest Park gathered all their pink hued yarn on one table, with hat patterns, to make it easy for shoppers.
