32 count Golden Harvest by Silkweavers
Recommended Overdyed Floss
I finished up Summer Basket on the train ride into work this morning. I'm pretty sure I'll pillowize it but not until next spring as that is the season I think it fits best with. I have a quilt that I like to display on my couch and this will match perfectly. I love the colors and it was super fast. I'll work on the floss holder as time permits.
I'll start on the Great Pumpkin Conspiracy on the way home tonight. I was able to find time to pick up the nine skeins of DMC I was missing after the agility trial on Sunday.
Clancy and I thank you all for the really nice comments about his new title. And it's all his, the dog gets the title not the handler. :-) I think he is most deserving. It was a long time between Jumpers titles - 18 months. He earned his Novice title so quickly I figured everything else was be a slam dunk also. That was so not the case. The difference between the level of difficulty in Novice and Open is very large. And the Open level really exposes every training flaw that you have as a team and I had (and still do) a ton of training flaws. I took a lot of short cuts with Clancy that I didn't think would be an issue later down the road and they all became issues so I had to do a lot of retraining. I'm hoping that I have avoided some of the problems in training Aoife but I'm sure several will rear their ugly heads once I start trialing her next month. But at least now I know how to address many of them and can work toward fixing them. Clancy's issues were/are so large that many times I just didn't know what to do to fix them. But he hung in there with me as I figured everything out. I think that is one of Clancy's greatest attributes as an agility dog. He is very patient with me and is willing to try and try until I get everything just right. Aoife is not as patient so that will be a wild ride! :-)
