Football Field Baby Blanket...

Someone called to the shop the other day asking for someone to crochet a blanket for her.
Then a few days later, an older man came to the shop asking for the same thing. Result it was the brother of the one who called.
I had already planned the pattern I would be using and was ready to giving him the option of colors and yarns... and then he says::

"So, you'll be able to make the football field then?"

"Excuse me????"- I said.

Apparently, the father-to-be was a former profesional football player, so the man (I'm guessing the grandpa) wanted a football field blanket to give the baby as a present...

So here I am...
... in the making of a crib size football field blanket...

It had been very funny to say "I'm in yard 20"... "I got to yard 30"... "I just have 60 yards to go"...
So that picture is from yesterday... today I'm almost at yard 90... I hope to finish the field and the goal line tomorrow.

Then the goal post made in slip stitch on each side and then a white border of 2 inches all around...
I'm still debating if I should emborider the yard numbers...

That's all for today!
See you soon!

Edited to add:: I just realized I never said anything else about this blanket. Well, I finished it in time and the gey loved it... you can see the details and more photos on my Ravelry projects page.

  2. OH!
    I think embroidering the numbers would be so lovely to do, although time consuming. Then the baby can learn numbers too or even turn it into a football field play mat when s/he's older!!
    Have fun finishing!

  3. What an awesome idea! I can't wait to see how it turns out!

  4. Hi - did you ever finish this?
