My current WIP. I ignored the gauge and now instead of fingerless gloves I’m knitting leg warmers.
Original pattern is the Gansey Wristers, so I’ll just ignore the thumb gusset and such and bind off after the tree-ish pattern.

Reblogging because I find this interesting and it’s regarding Michigan Midwifery practice.
Don’t have a home birth! Lol yeah just let a doc schedule when your baby should out, induce labor with chemicals, shoot up your back with chemicals, clamp the cord before it finishes delivering essential nutrients, let them rub chemicals onto your baby’s eyes.
Every decision about birth can have potential risks but I feel like this is highly misleading. YES consider your options, but also wtf is this shit about? Birthing a child is not a medical procedure, it’s something that happens naturally and HAS happened naturally since the dawn of our existence. There are also plenty of family lines that should have ended long ago, but haven’t, because there is no such thing as ‘survival of the fittest’ for our species anymore. Not only that, but I bet medical complications, infertility, and difficulties during childbirth have increased over the past few due to our horrible diets, pill popping, and modern lifestyles. The human race is fucking destroying itself.
Wow I really just need to go make that coffee and stop getting angry over pictures on the internet.
Don’t have a home birth, but go to a natural birthing facility that ISNT a hospital and actually knows whatdafuck is up with babies and the female body. AND dONT LET THEM INDUCE YOU JFC
Okay, calm down with the cHeMiCaLs rant. Everything has chemicals. LITERALLY EVERYTHING. Just because you don’t like them (or understand them), doesn’t make them inherently bad.
To respond to the rest of your rant, yes, birth is natural. And death during birth is natural. The advancements we have in medical science have saved millions. No, I won’t lie that there aren’t potential side effects and there aren’t nearly enough women happy with their births, but I’m sorry, to blame that all on hospitals is ludicrous. The entire point of this graphic is to INFORM the issues of homebirth in America; no one even said anything about hospitals. I’m sorry, but there needs to be a change in homebirthing, and it should start with legitimate certification and fucking insurance. What’s there to argue!? SEVERAL BABIES DIED LAST YEAR BECAUSE OF PROVIDER NEGLIGENCE.
I support safe, happy birthing. I believe you can achieve that with homebirth, but the risks are high. Women need to be informed of said risks, just like they need to be informed of the risks with inductions and Cesareans.
Lastly, and most importantly, stop demonizing things YOU don’t like. Some women WANT inductions, drugs, or hell, even surgery after being informed on their options and that’s okay. Fucking support BIRTH, not just your preference.
Hope your chem-filled coffee is good. 👍
Not to mention you can have a natural, drug free birth in a hospital where IF something goes wrong, supplies are there. Ask lesbianfamilies how happy she was to be in a hospital when she birthed her son.
Now in regards to induction and C-section and epidurals, a low risk woman can deny interventions and deliver in a hospital. This graphic was simply to show that unregistered, unregulated midwifery can be dangerous.
This post keeps getting better ❤️❤️❤️
if you want to kill someone stab them with an icicle because the icicle will melt and then there will be no murder weapon
Better yet, make like one of my favorite short stories and murder them with big frozen leg of lamb and then cook the lamb.
Then when the police arrive offer them something to eat and then have the police eat your murder weapon.
I love that story
Be with someone who would drive five hours, just to see you for one.
