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!
