Knitting a womb is easy!


When I first started knitting, I happened upon this womb pattern on knitty.com and thought I would have to wait until I was far more advanced to try it. But after my mitts, I decided to embark on the womb and found it quite easy. Here is much more information on this pattern from creator MK Carroll. I was also interested in the Wombs on Washington project where they were going to shower these knitted wombs on the steps of the Supreme Court in a pro-choice movement in March 2005. I can't seem to find much info on whether this "protest" took place or not.

In other womb news, Doug finds it quite disturbing. I think it is kinda cute. The way I positioned the fallopian tubes makes it look like a doll's head with ponytails, just need to add some googly eyes. Here are all the other places it ended up during the photoshoot.

This is funny! I don't knit or crochet, think I'd go nuts. But this womb might be learning how!

I must admit, this is the first Knitted Womb I Have ever seen.
There's a first time for everything. :D
Your stitches look very even and you've got the Fallopian tubes looking very realistic.
Good job!
