I've got a couple of larger projects on the needles right now, but I decided to take a break and use up some of the hand spun yarn I bought at Knitch in Atlanta.
I tried the peanut pillow pattern found here: http://www.polarknit.com/files/Peanut%20Pillow.pdf
I'm afraid it turned out a disappointment. The pattern was fine, but my choice of a dark yarn means the white of the stuffing shows through pretty bad. I've never tried using a kitcheners stitch to stitch things together, and I neglected to use a different yarn as my cast-on on one side. This was supposed to be a gift, but I think I'll mark it off as a failure instead.
