Cardigan finished! Stamp catalog here! and fabric find

For my Vlog video this week, I'm sharing a completed cardigan, a cap I knitted, my thoughts on selecting stamps, some stamps sets I want to move out eventually and some fabric I found in my stash.  The video runs a bit longer and I've marked the location for the knitting part if you aren't interested in all the stamp stuff.  The fabric bit is short and at the end.






Here's the video with the links below:



Here are links to things I mentioned in the video:

Stampin' Up! online catalog:  https://www.stampinup.com/en-us/product/catalogs
My demonstrator is Mary Fish at:  https://stampinpretty.com/
When I get them photographed and published, the stamp sets in the video will be on LovelyLayersArt Etsy shop for a few weeks or until they sell.

The hat I knitted is a pattern that came from this book:  Weekend Hats on Amazon
(I checked out a copy from the library)
The cardigan is from a tunic pattern in the spring Creative Knitting magazine.  You can find it here: Spring 18 Creative Knitting
I still think it would be beautiful as a tunic; a cardigan just fit my needs better.  I do not have my version typed up; I tend to work out bits as I go and no nothing about sizing or other people.  I'm still working on sizing for myself - ha!  Oh, and that would be easier if I'd lay off the Tostitos (one of my weaknesses.)
The Craftsy knitting class mentioned is from Anne Hanson and is here:  Button Bands and Buttonholes

I hope you enjoyed the video.  I'm combined a lot of stuff in one.  I haven't decided yet if it is better to do that or just save up projects and perhaps do a knitting video every few weeks and then a quilting video now and then.  Still figuring out the best way. I appreciate all the positive feedback I received on last week's effort.

Adding these photos of the cardigan so I can link other places:




Thanks for watching!
