1x1 rib hat progress

Here's the poor orphaned photo from the previous post!

Not very exciting to look at really, but I couldn't leave it out of the photo-shoot. It's slow going though, I find, using 12" circs and 1x1 ribbing. It makes a lovely soft warm fabric though. I'm determined to finish it and wear it! Next up are some hand/wrist-warmers in the same yarn. Both very practical and needed items for me as I can't set foot out of the house from October/November to at least March without a hat!

Does anyone else have terrible trouble with the validation graphics used in places like Blogger and YahooGroups? It took me three tries to join UKHK as each time I thought I had the correct letters and numbers, it returned me to the same page "try again". I can't read the blasted things! The letters are too skewed around. Thankfully the ones on Blogger seem to be mostly very legible (and yes I do wear glasses to use the computer!).

That does look as though it will be quite nice and warm. Mmmm. Wrist warmers are lovely things.

Excuse me if I'm missing it and being slightly dense, but what yarn are you using for that? Just curious, of course. :)

Hi Erin, I forgot to say the yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in black. It looks dark grey due to the camera flash :-) I had this left over from the Hufflepuff scarf, which was originally going to be reverse colours.

It looks great, all that rib would have driven me nuts.

pretty pretty stash enhancement! And isn't it nice to have a soft, warm hat?
I sometimes get the validation stuff wrong too, especially when they put a horizontal bar through a slanted letter or number - eg is that a 7 or a 1 or an L or a T?
