Bearl-y there

Despite Tux's escape attempts, I did manage to finish up the bear square
It's really more of a rectangle though. It ended up blocking out nice and large - 15.5 inches wide by 18 inches tall - which means I need less squares than I planned to make a decent size blanket. I think I'm going to do six colourwork squares opposite six textured squares of some kind (not sure what yet.)

My colourwork still needs work, but this one isn't too bad. I won't be casting on for another one just yet... I'm itching to get to Sherlock... but as soon as Sherlock is done, I think I'll knit a fox!

I really do love that bear, can't wait to see the fox once that's done. I rather like foxes though.
