I love the knitted digestive system. I wish I would have had one while I was in nursing school oh so long ago. Any way I am going to try and make one for work. I think it will work great for teaching our patients!
I am a little confused on the small intestine. How do I knit using 2dpn? I tried to cheat and put my stitches on 2 dpn (with the 3rd free) while knitting socks. It didn't work. I couldn't get my fingers where they needed to go. A dpn was always in the way. The sock had a 64 stitch hole. I can't fathom a 6 stitch hole being easier. I haven't tried it yet, but keep seeing myself struggling for 21 feet trying to make a tubish intestine.
My grandma always says "don't get your bowels in a flutter" (when we are having a spaz). While I think my bowels will be a flutter if I try to knit them on 2 dpns. Am I over reacting? akcolon
