Elijah the elephant an Ysolda Teague pattern. He's made from Old Maiden Aunt merino/ bamboo fluff that I spun on my Sonata and Navajo plied to give a DK weight yarn. I put a packet of dried aduki beans in his bottom so he sits right up. It was a really enjoyable and quick knit.

Socks made from handyed handspun BFL. Pattern was free from ravelry (annoyingly have forgotten the name). Had an interesting heel contruction (toe up) that fits really well.
Fingerless mitts made from handspun merino/silk blend. Made the pattern up as I went along.
Baby soaker made from drops yarn and free pattern

I'm currently spinning up some Glitzy Aubergine from World of Wool. It's a merino/trilobal nylon 70:30 mix in dark purple with rainbow nylon blended through it. It's so easy to spin. I haven't decided whether to make it a traditional 2 or 3 ply yet, but its probably going to be part of a jumper ... I think.
