Here's the little elephant that I finished a couple of days ago.  I used Susan B. Anderson's Elefante Pattern:

I used Crystal Palace's Bamboozle (http://www.straw.com/cpy/yarns/bamboozle_card.html) in the Fall Herbs colorway.  The yarn worked wonderfully for the pattern, it made a lovely, soft little elephant.  I used US size 5 bamboo dpns to get a tighter gauge with the yarn, I didn't want the stuffing to show through.  Thanks for looking!

This is adorable!  I think I may try making one of my own, but don't know if my knitting skills are good enough yet.
