Cast on and moving along

I've been working on Jaywalkers in the smaller size and they are much better fit. Now they are comfortably big. Before, they were HUGE big.



Also car repair was not as costly as it could have been. It was the alternator belt melting away. But I caught it before it did more damage so only had to buy belt and tensioner. Someone else I know just had to have alternator replaced and paid about 3x what I had to.

I thought that was someone bending over with really ugly shorts on. They make much better socks.....

Glad to hear the car news, and glad the socks will fit better. That is nice yarn for Jaywalkers.

Glad to hear about the car. Last time I lost a belt, it shredded and took all the other belts nearby. Also had to get shreds pulled out of the AC compressor. No fun.

Those look great! I love the green.

Glad to hear your car troubles didn't cost an arm and a leg!

Love the socks. Happy the car was caught in time, before you got stranded by a dead battery again. That's usually when I realize the alternator's bad.
Going to try and nail down a time for yarning and Kopp's with you; hopefully by next week I'll have the itinerary down and you can let me know when we should sneak off (I am NOT taking my spawn along) Type at you soon. Cami
