It's evening now, and I got this much done. Putting it away until tomorrow.
as you can tell, I'm not a professional knitter....still getting holes here and there, hoping they will close up when washed and blocked.
It's a pretty easy pattern, but you really have to watch the counting. I find that slipping the first stitch of every row, instead of knitting it, makes a nicer edge.
I don't think I would use yellow again....I suspect that darker colors will show up the paw print better.
