Design Notebook: Pip

A while ago, we got a shipment of Hazel Knits Cadence at the shop, and I immediately fell in love - it has the lovely, subtly shaded colors of Hazel Knits, but in a squishy worsted weight. As soon as I saw it, I thought of a hat design with a pointed lace detail and nupps. I hemmed and hawed for a few weeks before I finally broke down and got a skein in the colorway Braeburn, a reddish-orange with light green undertones, just like a Braeburn apple!

It was barely in my stash a week before I cast on and finished this little hat, which I'm calling Pip. I have tons of other things that I should be working on (and I have a bit of tendinitis in my right wrist that I'm knitting through with a brace, whoops), but this hat was just so easy and fast that I had to get it out of my noggin and... uh... onto my noggin.

I just finished a few minutes ago, and Pip is already taking a dip so I can block her. Hooray, hooray!

Happy Friday!
