crochet-baby-blanket

I finished my midwife baby blanket Sunday on the way back from the beach (thought it deserved it’s own post though). I played around with a few borders but Stuart wasn’t liking them and I wasn’t sure so I’ve left it at a row of hdc all around. I’m pretty happy with it like this, there’s a lot going on so the border should be simple but if I change my mind I have plenty of wool left. And if not, I can easily see a matching hat or something to go along with it. :))

Just coming up to (or possibly in) cycle 10′s TWW. With everything that’s been going on the past month or so, I’m just making sure we’re trying every 2-3 days and my tracking/obsessing is kept to a minimum. I won’t be able to test until we’ve moved so I’ve packed everything away and it’s been a really nice distraction.. that and picking out my next 10 crochet projects :P

Packers themed baby blanket progress. I’m using “I Love This Yarn” in the team spirit green and gold. I chained 120, and I’m using back loops only on this pattern, flipping my work after each row to give it that nice texture. I love how unique the blanket looks. It’s super soft and super warm. When I’m done, there should be around 60+ rows. This blanket will be good from 0-5 years old. :)

anonymous asked:

Hi, so I was wondering if I can get a head cannon of MC and rfa losing a baby and then maybe finally having one eventually? I lost my baby when I was a lil over 5 months and it crushed me. I've come to peace with it, but I'd love something to read and emotionally connect with. You're an amazing writer so I'm excited to see what you can do(:

Oh my goodness anonny you’re an amazing and such a strong person to have gone through that! I sincerely wish you happiness and love, I’m so happy to hear that this game has helped you overcome such a tough time! Thank you so much for your patience, I wanted to take my time and give you a well-thought out response plus I kind of got carried away when writing these! I truly hope that you enjoy, if you need me to change anything please don’t hesitate to ask!! :)

Side Note/Warning: I decided to get rid of the under the cut thingie since I had a few people message me about it not working plus it wasn’t working on my mobile. So this is a warning. this headcanon talks about pre-mature child deaths and I know that this cane make some people uncomfortable so please skip this one if you feel this way. Anyways, there’s my warning and I hope that the rest of you enjoy!! ^^

Except for blocking this baby blanket is done.

Big thank you to everyone that responded with help and thoughts on how to make the white squares work with the very detailed plaid squares.

I wasn’t sure it was working until I added the ruffle. It brought it all together.

Made with @redheartyarns heart baby soft steps in tickle and red heart soft in white
