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!
