Maybe it’s empty nest syndrome, except the nest isn’t empty. Instagram user Marieke Voorsluijs, a self proclaimed “textiles enthusiast, knit hysteric, (and) yarn junkie,” submitted an article to Bored Panda titled “My Son Doesn’t Want To Cuddle Anymore So I Knit A Cuddly Version Of Him.”

In the post you’ll find pictures of Voorsluijs proudly displaying a life size knitted version of her son with subtitles like “smother mother.”

Which begs the question, is she crazy, or just really creepy?

Well, according to the Huffington Post, it’s neither. Rather, it’s just a joke, albeit a really bad one.

“If I knew so many people thought this was really about getting more cuddles by a love-sick mother by knitting my son, I would have posted something different,” Voorsluijs said.

Uh huh. Sounds like a lot of back pedalling if you ask us.

In her defense, Voorsluijs has a history of knitting up some pretty weird stuff. In fact, she does it all the time for her company Club Celuk, so maybe she’s not pulling the wool over our eyes.
