Asian Themes and Knitting Content

I've been feeling in a bit of a funk art-wise since I finished the mystery envie project. Can't seem to start any new pieces so have been concentrating on the themed swaps I need to do this month.

I did mess around in my journal the other night. I almost didn't post a picture of this but gotta show the bad with the good right? I wasn't trying to come up with anything here, just messing around.

As I mentioned last post, I worked on some Asian themed pieces this weekend. First are some 4x6s for a swap and next is a deco. I wasn't too sure about the deco. It is in the shape of a kimono and label "different shape deco" and after looking at the other art already in it I couldn't decide if it was supposed to be shape themed are asian themed so sort of went with both! Asian themed shapes.

I'm getting together a package of decos to send on and decided to include one for myself. So I made this Squares deco.

I've been knitting this week, using some leftovers from the ripple blanket I made these fingerless mitts. My 6yo took this photo for me. Did a pretty good job! We only had to do one "do-over" as the first had his thumb over the lens.

Finally got my CPS last week. It went to my old address so that's why the delay. The next issue will come here. I also picked up the latest issue of Romantic Homes because posie gets cozy has a gorgeous long feature in it. Wonderful issue all about colour! I've never bought this mag before as I didn't think it would appeal to me but if every issue is like this it may just become a regular buy.
