Government Free VJJ says, “We are women, we are strong, we are smart.

Says the knitter, “It’s not completely anatomically accurate. I’ve taken a few liberties with the general shape and scale, as well as leaving out the ligaments connected to the ovaries. And, of course, the human uterus is not normally bubblegum pink.”

5. Knitted uterus knitting.

6. Knitted uterus in the grass.

8. Knitted uterus with a face.

9. Knitted uterus with a smirk.

10. Knitted uterus on the fence.

11. Knitted uterus with ovaries.

12. Knitted uterus giving birth…

“Note the detachable birth canal and the placenta!!!”
