Wraps were popular in the 70s!

Yessirree, my 70s TV star with the same first and last initial is Alan Alda.

For understandable reasons, I was in awe of him. And he was exactly as you would expect him to be: unassuming, professional and nice. And he was much better looking in person. Not that he isn't handsome on film but he is handsomer in person.


It isn't as hot as it was but I'm still avoiding the wool. I'm sticking to the cotton socks and this:


hemp baby wrap


A baby wrap from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I'm doing it in hemp. This is the first time I've knit with hemp and I'm not loving it a whole bunch. It feels just like knitting with twine (I think it might actually BE twine, isn't it?). Twine that twists back on itself all the time. You can put it in the washer and dryer and it does soften up with washing (I felt the shop sample) but it is not pleasant now. Great color though, doncha think?



The pattern is fun, knit in one piece and it may actually be an infant sweater that will fit an infant. It seems like whenever I make a sweater for 0-3 months the size is more like 6-12 months. This one is nice and small.


I don't have another gratuitous greyhound photo. It would just be another sleeping one. I'll get some video of Sapphire running in her sleep. You have to see it to believe it!
