wow, you guys are good knowing exactly what yarn it is! It is No Boundaries. At my wal-mart, they have teal, brown, and pink, so maybe I'll try making a family.
At my wal-mart, it's still around $2
I wish they had different colors. I think the brown would be an awesome one to make a teddy bear with - mimic the furry quality. And definitely, it is a bit difficult because you really can't see what you're doing. I just stick it in and find a hole, and it works out somehow!
And yes, it is my own pattern!
