1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Digestive System Knitalong: Part Five, Stomach! on: July 01, 2006 02:17:44 PM
Yes, I had trouble with the pancreas too, but am very pleased at how it turns out, the pancreas stitches, when turned inside out, make it look just like the texture was described to me (like oatmeal that has been left out a day or two).  What helped me was to first read about the pancreas, it is 5-6 inches long and about 1" thick.  I started the bottom kind of like toe up socks, I didn't actually use waste yarn, but after one row, which I used like a base row that I knit off of front and back onto two different needles.  I am not sure if this is what the directions meant, but it came out perfect, you then work in the round, but it is more elongated like a sock than round.  So I cast on 4, then did my way of doing toe up socks, to then have 8 stitches to work in the round, then I placed the marker and continued with the pattern K1, Kf,b,f of nest stitch across.  I kind of followed the pattern after that, but the number of rows made my pancreas too big, so I kept with what I read about it being 5-6 inches long, and the general shape of it.  The texture stitches, the pancreas stitch is great, but you don't realize that until the end when you turn it inside out and stuff it.  I did the kitchener bind off as the weaving stitches together.  I don't know if this helps, since I could not exactly follow the pattern either.  The liver again I read about it first, it is cone shaped about 8" x 6 1/2".  To start, it is only the first row that you slide the stitches, once you have 6 stitches, I placed a marker and did in the round.  You increase 6 stitches every other row until you get to 72 stitches.

I am almost done with the small intestines.  I love this project.  Thanks so much for posting your pattern.  It reminds me of a "Mr. Stuffy" my children saw at a museum once when they were young.  You unzipped him and took out his parts.  You can see him on the web.  http://www.stuffee.com/about.htm  A $10,000 doll!  (Or I mean learning tool)

Thanks so much for posting your pattern.  I have just begun it, my son is in vet school and he wants it.  I am so impressed with your knitting skills.  It reminds me of a "Mr. Stuffy" my children saw at a museum once when they were young.  You unzipped him and took out his parts.  Oh I just found him on the web.  http://www.stuffee.com/about.htm  A $10,000 doll!  (Or I mean learning tool)  Hope the rest of the pattern is posted soon.  Thanks again.
