This is Henry - the reworked version of my traditional bear pattern.  He has a shorter head and smaller muzzle; slimmer arms; smaller feet; and different darting to the his body and legs.  And his short-haired bits are made from a paler shade of mohair than Herbert's.

I have really taken to him - I think he is lovely - particularly the eyes, although they still look a bit startling from some angles.  The only thing I forgot was to adapt the arms so they have paw pads.  

I think I have enough of this mohair to make one more of these though, so maybe the third bear (Houdini) will have paw pads.

And in other news…. my linen has arrived!  I hope to have some crows available soon!
