Okay that's better. It just makes sense to wear what you're blogging about while you're blogging it right? And see what I mean about the thumb holes? Perfect. Plus, they help your hands look and feel more like paws. Which is always a good thing.
I chose to do duplicate stitch for the bear's face. My first attempt at intarsia was enough to make me run from ever trying to try again, at least on a large gauge. It was so awful, far worse than anything I've ever knitted, even my learning projects back when I was nine. So duplicate stitch it was. Thank heavens we have that option.

And in honor of bears and bear-lovers all over the world...
But hey, I was just happy to have finally seen a bear. :)
