My name is Elena Nodel, and I am a mom to a very industrious, busy, ever curious and adventurous little girl. She is my ever present inspiration for all my creative ideas. As she grows, she becomes more and more involved in my creative work, and actually does have a say in a final look of any given project. I have a Girly Girl, thus most of my designs are very feminine. However, lately I have started working on more unisex projects.
I was born and raised in Russia, a place where knitting is a part of the lifestyle. I now live in British Columbia, Canada, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I am a trained microbiologist/immunologist , and have spent years doing scientific research. I am married to a like scientist, and his name is Peter. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive husband, and Maya is very lucky to have a father who constantly encourages her natural curiosity, and teaches her about the world around her - she has him wrapped very tightly around her little finger!
I love working with natural fibers such as cotton or wool, and always try to use them.One thing I don't like doing is seaming, therefore I knit in the round as much as possible. It is great for me and comfortable for kids. And as a result, I usually design my garments to be worked in the round from the top down.
Dare to follow?
My daughter needed some warm hats for the cold weather we have been having and as I had just bought a whole bunch of yummy super soft merino yarn in ten different colors, she decided she needed a hat in every color and combination possible with green being her favorite, so hence the idea.
I wanted a pattern that is easy to customize, to create different looks. Therefore there are simple instructions here as well as several different options for varying the look of the hats.
My daughter calls all the hats I am making using this pattern "Lollipop Hats" ... hence the name...her names usually stay over mine. Have fun creating your own combinations using the pattern as a guide
