Some of the things I've got on the needles at the moment. All the yarn here is yarn I got in the Great Swap from my Incredible Buddy Becka! And, the socks are her pattern - isn't it beautiful! - and I'm even using needles she gave me!
Tried my hand at knitting some jewelry...

Thanks everyone. I am having lots of fun. Taking a week off from work and :XX:
Tamar - You can get Becka's pattern for the socks free (well, a penny LOL) at Kemp's store, Diva Knitting, with any purchase there.
The pattern for the scarves is on the KnitPicks site, also free.
Jamadian - The 3 on 1 idea was totally new to me, which is exactly why I did it. I'm not sure I'd try with harder patterns, but with simple ones it's lots of fun!
Everything looks beautiful. I love the yellow socks!!

WOW! I'm impressed! What technique did you use to knit the jewelry? Everything is gorgeous!

Beautiful!! I love the jewelery and the scarves. :) I went to knitpicks to check out the pattern and got all excited when it said "you can do this project for as little as $9.__" Turns out that was just the price for one scarf. :(
I'm saving my pennies, though, so I can give those scarves a shot. You did a wonderful job!

Thanks! This is the pattern for the bracelet. It was fast and fun and I'm happy with it. I think it well take a lot of practice to get the trick of the tension and not twisting the wire, etc. But I can't do much at once because it hurt my fingers a little. (Not much, and woth it, but still...) The earrings were the same, except decrease to just the one bead at the top.
