This is a knitted uterus - yep, a uterus. You see, I have this friend who is acting out a skit for the vagina monologs (see http://www.michianamonologues.org/).
This skit is written by a woman whose mother taught childbirth classes and used a knitted uterus. My friend wanted a uterus as a visual and asked for my help. Well, don't you know we found a pattern from www.mother-care.ca/uterus.htm. I used bits and pieces of yarn from my basket. I'm not sure what I used in all, but I know I used wool ease pink and heather rose and then some fluffy purple somethings. I wanted it to look like it had veins running through it. I used #4 circular needles. This very special uterus will be a part of the silent auction on February 22-23 at the Michiana Monologues and will benefit a local women's shelter.
