FO: Sockhead Slouch Hat

Look, Ma, a finished object!

This is a Sockhead Slouch Hat, knit in Madelinetosh BFL Light, colorway “Bare Minimum”. I’ve knit like four of these hats, they’re super simple and perfect TV or purse knitting.  I don’t really need more hats (I totally have another hat on the needles anyway), but I really wanted to see how this colorway knit up (I have it on the Twist Light base too).  The photos aren’t an optical illusion – there’s definitely more yellow towards the end of the hat.  Interesting!   As for the base, I don’t really enjoy knitting with pure BFL – I find it hard on my hands, probably because I’m a really tight knitter.  Otherwise, I would say this base is really comparable to tosh merino light – it’s a single, and tends to be a little splitty.
