I had started this hat before these arrangements were made, however, so this gift was a bonus to my sister. I got the yarn (Bergere de France Idéal in Truffe, almost 2 full skeins) from my favorite local yarn shop here in Montpellier - La Mercerie. Not only does this shop have the best selection of yarn, but it also hosts a get-together once a month for friends to hang out in the store, have tea, and knit. I went to my first one in December, then again this month. It's a great way to meet new people, practice my French, and share a hobby with others.
