FOs: wire bracelet & earrings, Leaves of Whimsy Socks!
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.

http://www.divaknitting.com/store/in...b966a703b51ef1

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!
