Knitters Digest

Between my current lack of camera - yes I've finally sent it off for repair - and issues of heath that are coming to the forefront again, it's been hard for me to post. But I've finally found something that is blog worthy. It's a current topic for me, and there are pictures so that you-all are not lacking for visuals.

Additionally, it's a knitting pattern! Amazing since I originally thought this blog was going to be about my creative endeavours, not the this-and-that-and-the-other-thing that it's turned into.

And so, now that the build up is complete, I present you with a

Knitted Digestive System!


Yes, there are patterns out there for pretty-much whatever you would like to make. I remember a year-or-two ago when E- had a hysterectomy, a friend made her a knitted uterus. She was not released to drive, so I volunteered to take her to her post-surgical doctor's appointment. She popped her new uterus into her knitting bag and off we went.




As it would so happen, we must have looked pretty suspicious. The guard in the parking lot approached us and I suggested that Elena show him her uterus. She did.

He was a bit surprised. Flumoxed. He asked her "And so you have two?"

"No." she answered seriously, looking him right in the eye. "I only have one." Then we laughed and went on to her appointment.



Well, my issue is not one of uterui, but of colon. Wouldn't you know it, I happened upon a knitting pattern for the digestive tract. Now I will need to check out my yarns and see if I have the appropriate colors. For I know what the project-of-choice will be if things don't get better soon.

Ditto what Ang said Laura. Thats why I admire you so and I could learn a thing or two from you as well. Wish I could think of some body part or organ I could ask you to knit for me but this had me stumped! LOL LOL
