Quick BIG Brag!

“Chester,” one of my puppies from my first litter received his Championship this weekend at the Twin Brooks Kennel Club Show. This is my first home-bred champion and it was so exciting to see him take a 4-point major! He was expertly shown by professional handler Marcelo Chagas. Don’t have a photo of his win (will purchase one as soon as it’s available from the show photographer) but here is Chester as a young beagle pup:

Here he is, Ch. Foxfire Prince Chester :o)

The Thrill of Victory…Marching Along

I’ve been working on the Secret Mystery Shawl 7 for awhile now…and I’m proud to say I’ve declared myself victorious and made it up to Row 50 last night. This is after many froggings and switching from laceweight to fingering and changing needle sizes a few times. I discovered I had been slipping 2 stitches when I should have K2TOGed…just slight mistakes like that which alters stitch count and makes for crazy, frenzy frogging.

And another WIP has marched over the threshold to becoming an FO! These are my Trekking XXL Zitron 108 socks, made for SAM5. They are very comfy and my first fraternal patterned socks.
