I just found out about this a couple of months ago myself. I started the stomach this evening and the same thing happened. I just did an increase in the next row and kept going from there.
I am enjoying this project very much. It's my commute project and I work on it when I'm riding the subway. Recently I rescued a cat who had some intestinal parasites. Supposedly the beasties are gone, but his stool is still very mushy. The vet was explaining that the intestines needed to heal and there was no way for us to know how long he had the infection. She went on to tell me about the villi in the small intestine, and I said, "oh, I've got some on me..." and proceeded to pull out my miles of small intestine. She was amazed and said she wished her teachers (I teach science) did something like that for her when she was in school.
This is definitely a conversation starter...or ender, depending on the reaction of the person asking you what you are working on.
