FO - Sockhead hat

If I were to design a hat and call it "Sockhead", I would make it like a sock, complete with heel turn and Kitchener toe. This Sockhead hat was much easier than that - four inches of ribbing, nine inches of stockinette, crown - but felt interminable. HOWEVER. It was excellent brainless knitting, the yarn is pretty and soft, and I was able to binge watch "30 Rock" for much of it.

Pattern: Sockhead Hat by Kelly McClure
Yarn: Vermont Farmhouse Yarns fingering, colorway "Frosted Berries" (love the name!)
Needles: US2
Modifications: none.

I really need to get a mannequin head for hat shots. Trying to showcase the slouchiness of this hat by taking a "selfie" in the bathroom mirror just does not cut it.

That's one of my favorite hats; and I'm not a hat person. Its does seem like it goes on forever and ever, but it is great tv/mindless knitting for sure and its a super hat when done!
