Six Colored Spiral

I spent part of last night and a better part of today trying to figure out how to knit a 6 colored spiral. I think I started over 7 times, but I think I finally got it. Here is a photo of it so far. As the rays get wider, I'm not sure how to manage the floats on the backside. I may have to add a new strand of yarn every time I go around.

Designing a Neon Green Teddy Bear

Hello knitters,
Today I made some progress on my neon green teddy bear. I had to design the leg and foot part. The first version came out with the foot too tall, so I frogged it and started again. This time I was more or less happy with it, but on the next one I'll make the legs thinner. I have a photo showing the head, two arms, and the leg I knitted today.
