So, for biology, we had a lot of choices for final projects and one of them was to make a cell model. Everyone else was thinking styrofoam and all...

I was thinking crochet.

So, I took the inspiration from here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=65189.0

and I got this.


It took me about three weeks on and off to make. The nucleus (purple circle) actually flips open to reveal the nucleolus (a smaller purcle circle), which flips open to reveal a bunch of twisted yarn (CHROMATIN!) Haha, I had too much fun making this.

The best was the response I got from my teacher. She actually went over to another biology teacher's room and showed it to her (that teacher knits, so she was even more amazed).

All in all, I think it would make a great pillow.

I wish we had something like this in my biology class, I'd be excited about a final like that! Great idea, I love it.

Thanks for all the compliments! Cheesy

krafty_kelly: haha, that sounds so funny. (they're the only knitted parts of the piece. the rough ER is about 6 feet long and the other one is about 4 feet long.)

Mienna: instead of a final exam, our teachers made us do three projects (my other two were a mitosis mobile and cleaning up a park)

That totally rocks.  I had a project much like that in grade 10, but I made mine out of jello, a cupcake, and candy.  The following year I made a DNA model out of candy.  This year both my models were out of homemade playdough, but i made them with Koolaide so they smelled nice...  Perhaps I should have knitted them...

I love biology!
