Amigurumi Bomb-omb. This was fun and fairly easy! Pattern here: http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/04/bombomb.html
Broomstick lace cup sleeve. No pattern, but this was the first usable thing I made.
Amigurumi dachshund. This pattern is free on Ravelry.com (Dachshund 'Claw') and is actually a great pattern despite how this thing looks. It was my first amigurumi, and I used a hook that was way too big! I need to retry it now that I know a bit more.
Wrap scarf for mom - she wanted something shorter that would wrap around her neck. I ended up creating a pattern with a combination of post stitches to get the ridged effect with textured yarn. The matching hat needs more work...
Long man-scarf for dad. Made with Dan's Minimalist Scarf pattern on Ravelry, but also available here: http://www.hookedupcrochet.com/patterns-minimalist.html
I definitely recommend the crab stitch edging - it makes the scarf!
