Because it was there?

One of the ICANers recently linked to this blog post. Obviously, I just had to have one! Why? Because it's cute, it's funny and my knitted uterus needed a friend. Only one problem- there is no pattern! I searched the web and couldn't find a pattern for a knitted placenta anywhere. So I decided to make my own! Here's how it turned out:

In case anyone is interested, I used four double pointed needles to make a hexagon, exactly from the instructions I found here. Then I used a spool knitter to make the cord and sewed it to the center hole of the hexagon. Instant placenta! It only took about two hours to make... I'm sure a really experienced knitter could make one of these in no time. Happy knitting!
