I managed to finish another few small projects this week, in the midst of my cardigan turmoil. I think I'll shelve that one for a while and maybe work on this one instead:

It is a free pattern called the Eco Vest. I was thinking of doing it in Irish tweed wool. Of course, that would mean ordering more wool............ so instead I think I might just work on the tank tops for the girls for this summer, since I already have that yarn.
In the hope that spring will happen sooner rather than later, I whipped up an ear warmer. It was super fast--like one day fast (instant gratification is my favourite), and would appear to work rather well. I used some yarn I had left over from a beret I made, it is 50% wool, 50% mohair. And because I am a person that cannot cast off loosely, even when I go up two sizes in needles, I used the Stretchy Bind off which worked really well!
Next up, I finished another Chubby Chirp. I know, I know, enough with the chirps already! I'm working on my last one right now, and then I'm done. I've lost interest in them after the 3rd. Here's an extreme close up, which makes him look bigger than he is! So cute. Maybe just one more.................
