After a very busy weekend, Part Two is here!


Anus

With size 6 dpns and Angry Pink, cast on 10 sts using a
temporary cast-on, join.  (If you don't know how to do a
temporary cast-on, just cast on normally using waste
yarn then knit 1 row with Angry Pink).
Knit 8 rows.

Pull cast-on edge up through the middle of the dpns.  
Slip a few stitches off the waste yarn and onto a spare
dpn (I find it helps to use a smaller size). Next knit
every stitch together with a stitch from the cast-on
edge, slipping cast-on stitches from waste yarn onto the
spare dpn as needed. Place a stitch marker to mark the
beginning of the row.

Cast-on edge slipped onto small needle, ready to knit together.


Insert needle through one working stitch and one cast-on stitch,


and knit.


The finished Anus.

Awww, it's cute!

Rectum

M1 = make one stitch by lifting the running thread between the stitches and knitting into the back of this loop.

K3 rows plain.
K3,M1,K3,M1,K3,M1,K1 (13 sts)
K2 rows plain.
K4,M1,K4,M1,K4,M1,K1 (16 sts)
K2 rows plain.
K4,M1,K4,M1,K4,M1,K4,M1 (20 sts)
K12 rows plain.
K5,M1,K5,M1,K5,M1,K5,M1 (24 sts)
K6 rows plain.
Next row:  *K12, wrap and turn, P10, w&t, K8, w&t, P6,
w&t, knit to end of row, picking up wraps.*
K5, picking up wraps, and repeat from * to *.
K2 rows.
Switch from Angry Pink to Placid Pink by following the
fair isle chart, carrying both colors behind the work.

Row 5: Break Angry Pink and knit all stitches with
Placid Pink.
K4 more rows with Placid Pink.

The finished Rectum, notice how the short rows cause the top to bend slightly.




C'mon, Craftsters!  I want to see your anuses!

Im reading thru the instructions & Im ok with most of it. However, Im not familiar with "wrap and turn". Can anyone explain it to me please Huh

Im also wondering if the small intestines can be done with a kitting spool.

Wrap & turn is the command for making short rows, Knitty has a pretty good article on the technique here: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/FEATbonnetric.html.

You could do the small intestines with a knitting spool, but, personally, I can knit faster than I can push the yarn over those little nails.  I'll share my tips for making the small intestines go quickly when we get to that section.  Wink

I'm TOTALLY lost on the anus.  (I LOVE that I just typed that sentence.) 

Here: Next knit every stitch together with a stitch from the cast-on edge, slipping cast-on stitches from waste yarn onto the spare dpn as needed.

When you say "every stitch" do you mean I am knitting each bottom stitch (those on my needles) to a corresponding cast on stitch?  (One needle stitch to each cast on stitch?)  And, if this is right, am I knitting them into one stitch (as in, decreasing?) Or am I totally lost?

You've absolutely got it right.  It's just like doing a knitted hem, but with very few stitches and in the round.  Any suggestions how I could rewrite the instructions to make it a little more obvious?


Edit:  I added two more pictures showing the knitting-together process.

arrmatie...now that you have new pictures and a caption that explains the one-to-one knitting, i think it makes perfect sense! I've never knit a hem, but even knowing that it's like a hem helps. thanks!

I really really need one of these for my desk. I'm a medical transcriptionist, mostly imaging, so I've done reports on every part of the digestive systsem from stem to stern. And when I have time to do something else, I usually end up transcribing colonoscopy reports!

Dunno what my co-workers will think -- they'll probably love it.  And it will go so well with my knitted uterus.

Just a thought - Does anyone know a good technique for taking pictures of your own hands?  My current solution involves having my fianc hold the camera in front of my eyes and push the button when I tell him to.  Unfortunately, the camera's a little too close to the knitting to focus well, and having someone hold something in my face is aggravating as I'm a little farsighted.  I don't think my camera has a timer, so that's out.
