Thanks. I've started the bonnet with the bernat hook just because I wanted to do something. As of today I've got a borrowed steel number 4 which is definitely skinnier. (Why does the Bernat say it is 2.00mm?) I figure my baby have have two sizes of bonnets because her head will grow.

My local craft store is called Walmart. There they only sell the steel, numbered hooks in 10 packs. I've already bought that pack and really would rather not buy all 10 hooks again when I should have 9 of them somewhere. My number 10 got a nick in it and needs to be replaced. I had to borrow that one to finish my baby's gown. I'd like to replace it. After a good hunt for my missing hooks I'd like to replace whatever is missing. I don't go to the craft stores in the city, so now I know I can buy separate hooks there when I'm out that way.
