The garter stitch elephant, a free Ravelry download. Pretty cute. I have another one in the works in green.
They're for a friend to give to a new baby. The sex is unknown and the nursery theme is Noah's Ark, so I went green and yellow with the elephants.

Two skeins of Peanut, ready to be knit up into something awesome.
Peanut ended up becoming about 100 yards of three ply yarn. I had one thicker single and one skinnier single. I plied the skinnier single back onto itself, but it was all overspun and coiled because I hadn't put enough twist in when I was plying. The thicker single was also coiling up on itself. So I plied the two ply with the single, and voila, it all ended up a pretty calm balanced three ply. Not exactly what I had planned, but it should work out just fine.
