Hobby Lobby carries their own store brand of worsted weight yarn called "I Love This Yarn". It is really soft and pretty, and comes in lots of yummy colors. I think it is normally $3.99 per skein, but you can use a coupon for it. It makes really nice hats, too.
I made a whole bunch of spiral scarves for Christmas, so I had lots of leftovers that I used to make hats.
