Tit for [uterine] tat

Posted by Nanc

Catchy title, eh?

In trade for our healthy baby, my OB received a knitted uterus. Fair trade, right?

Okay, so we didn’t barter for the bebeh, or even her quality. And I promise you, our doctor was well compensated for the prenatal care I received. But as a thank you for his care and concern, I did knit him a uterus. (Despite the fact that he did not deliver Evelyn, and was at the time on a cruise in the Caribbean.)

At first, I was thinking along the lines of a nice scarf or a coffee cup cozy to show my gratitude, but the more I met with my doctor and the more he laughed at my jokes (which really is cause for compensation on it’s own), I came to believe that he would be tickled with a novelty uterus. And what better recipient than an OB to appreciate it.

The pattern is Womb from Knitty. I used Cascade 220 held double. The color is bubblegum pink; not exactly a realistic color, but if you could make your uterus any color…

and yeah, I’m ending the post on that thought
