Right now I'm designing a knit toy, so I can't say too much about it except that I think you'll like it when it's ready.

Pattern: Sheep from Debbie Bliss' Farmyard Knits
Yarn: Jo Sharp Silkroad DK for the body and Jo Sharp DK for face, feet and horns
Notes: Getting the stuffing 'right' was quite challenging - that is, firm enough to keep the legs upright, without distorting the body
The second project is a rabbit, using a vintage pattern that I found on display in a quirky shop in my area. It sells a mix of vintage clothes, old china, yarn, fabric and other crafty stuff. They wouldn't sell the pattern, but they copied it for me.
Pattern: Vintage Pattern 'The Rabbit Family' - Father Rabbit knitted
Yarn: Freedom 100% wool by Twilleys of Stamford (50g, 50m balls)
Needles: 8mm (yarn label specifies 10mm)
Notes: Father Rabbit took 7 balls (6 and a third really) knitted at a tension of 12st in 10cm

I like the FO's I've seen posted and will check back regularly to see the wonderful things you guys knit up. In my case, it'll be a month before I have anything to show since other obligations are keeping me from devoting much time to knitting.
In the meantime, have fun knitting and being creative.
