Knitted Frog Dissection

Picture_4

I love thinking about the lab instructions for this knitted biology project: "Okay now find the mesentary and the pancreas...use your scapel to cast on, and then your number 5 needle to lift up the purled oviducts."   "aKNITomy makes these darling hand-knit dissected frogs with needle-felted guts. They're mounted in aluminum dissection trays. Titled "Knitting in Biology 101," they're available in the Boing Boing Bazaar for $125." And in case it looks too gross, these yarn x-eyes remind you that you CAN'T actually smell the formaldehyde.
