Have you seen all the pink hats around town? They are knit out of various shades of pink yarn and all them have little ears.

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.

The Womxn's March on Seattle will gather around 9:30 - 10am Saturday, January 21 and march from Judkins Park (2150 S Norman St, Seattle, WA 98144). The three mile route will end at Seattle Center.

Rallies are planned for each end, with soapbox speakers along the way.

Local churches and political organizations are chartering buses and forming car pools. Thousands of people are expected to participate including many from Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. 

Other Washington state rallies will be held in Bellingham, Ephrata, Friday Harbor, Longview, Mount Vernon, Olympia, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Union, Vancouver, Wenatchee, and Yakima.

I can't knit to save my life. Does anyone know where to purchase one of these hats? Thanks!
