Knitting Ideas

I accidentally left my camera in Santa Cruz last weekend and it has surprisingly heightened my desire to blog. I guess what I can't do, I then want to do? It's usually a photo in my camera that inspires me to post. So, without my camera I am leaning on others, and tonight I saw these knitted dissections and I thought I'd share them here since it gave me such a big tickle. Living with Annie, who is drawn to dissection and anatomy, I've stood by and watched her do a fish dissection and she always wants to identify the organs that sometimes come with a chicken or turkey, but I've never dissected anything, and I hope I never do. I think this knitted version is as close as I would come.

Looks like you have a little scientist on your hands. I am not good with disection either.

Thanks for all your kindness during the huricanne. It meant a lot to me.

I haven't felt like blogging much lately. Hope it comes back.

Would you ask Annie about the inards of bugs? Last like I was wondering about the circulatory system of bugs. The can't just be filled with "bug juice", can they?
Those disections are incredible.

Very cool! I love these!
In highshcool we dissected a frog and a large rat. It was actually very interesting to me because I was thinking of Leonardo Da Vinci.
The down side was the horrible smell of the formaldehyde and thinking of the animal whose life was sacrificed for our biology class. Now there is discussion of biology classes using digital software to learn about the insides of animals. It's very interesting!
I love these knitted ones you found.

fascinating... and yet, gruesome. I think the frog dissection in high school was a low point in the educational spectrum for me. And I obviously learned nothing, since I couldn't tell you what any of those little felted parts are supposed to be.
