What's For Dinner?

Just finished this cute beret knitted in a combination of Noro Kureyon...and the other cheaper one that looks like Noro whose name escapes me right now.  Can you see the join?
When knitted it looks like a beanie - in order to make the beret shape, the pattern advises blocking it over a dinner plate.  Which is what's inside right now.  Can't wait to see if it works when the hat is dry and the plate removed!

As far as painting is concerned, after the brief hiatus over Christmas, it's back in the saddle with an acrylic dog portrait - hooray!  Haven't done a dog portrait in acrylics for a very long time, I'm looking forward to it.

Hooray! I am so glad for you. It's nice to have a commission come in at just the right time.

Can't wait to see if your dinner plate ploy will work. LOL xo
