Can’t fight this feeling anymore

It’s hat fever season.
Less than 24 hours after finishing Opus Spicatum, I’ve churned out an Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap, and while it still needs some… buttons, or a pompom, or something ridiculous like that, it’s cute as a button now and I’m totally wearing it to the Mass in H-minor at the Nikolai church this afternoon.
It’s all knit flat, which I think is always amazing for a hat, and then seamed together at the back. I have to say, I’m not the biggest fan of short rows, usually – I abhor short row heels on socks, I never come out with the right stitch count afterwards – but this cute little thing? Rocks the short rows, and the stitch pattern conquered my heart in a storm.
It’s around 80 g of Zitron Nimbus on 4 mm needles, done in… less than a day! Man, I’m just churning stuff out these days!
