WIP-ping up a hat

As I had 300g of the Stylecraft Life Chunky (Mixtures Cranberry) yarn left over from making the belted tunic, Jenny asked for a Tam (or similar) to go with it.  After some searching and reading, Jenny’s preferred design was Blackberry Surprise, by Thea Colman.  I’ve started on it today, finally daring to knit a piece using circular needles!

Not only does this mean using circular needles from scratch (there’s also some DPN work towards the end), knitting-in-the-round, but I’ll also be learning to “smock”.  Should be interesting!
