Tis the season for knitting warm scarves, mittens … and a uterus? You might not see human anatomy as inspiration for getting out your knitting needles, but this “cute, cuddly uterus doll” as Knitty describes it, could make a surprising DIY baby shower gift. After all, the womb is a pretty amazing organ, so why not celebrate it? Visit Knitty to find a pattern and learn how to create one yourself — fallopian tubes and all! We, of course, suggest you start by selecting an eco-friendly wool, not synthetic, pink yarn. And finish by stuffing your knitted uterus with leftover yarn or fabric scraps.
