Don't know if anyone saw my thread yesterday about my internal organ stitch markers http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83040.0 .  I'm a nursing student, and am thus more than sufficiently interested in all things anatomy.  Well, today I decided to make some more antatomically correct stitchmarkers ... I liked the uterus ones so much I decided to make a set.   Cheesy

I love them.  But do the ovaries get caught in your knitting?

If they don't, I want some!

Yay! Womb pride! Those are Amazing! It is always exciting for me to see others on craftster who find anatomy inspiring. I now really want to make some and use them when I knit my next womb.(http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTwomb.html)

Ooo, Baast!  Let's!

Or I could just host a stitch marker making night at my place.  As long as no one minds the pups being here too.  We could call it a Puppies and Ovaries party....a Fallopian and Fur Kids party....wait, I'm thinking of more!

KnitterMa, I saw your internal organs stitch markers and I love these too! You've inspired me to make some cool markers for a lady at work who likes to act uptight, but can't help but be fun!

Those are strangely cute and very interesting. What a great conversation starter.

MUHAHAHA! 

Me too!  On my last round of "organ" markers ... that was the only external one I did.   Cheesy (Thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83040.0 ).  I wasn't sure it was allowed, so there's only one pic of it in my blog...those little buggers do lend themselves quite well to stitch markers, without the concern that small parts (HAHAHAHA) will be getting caught in the knit fabric. 

Hmm...maybe I should make a set of penis stitch markers.  I don't know, DH might divorce me.   Cheesy Wink

I'm a fan. They would go very well with the vagina earrings I bought not too long ago.

baast, you might want to use another clay brand besides Sculpey if you have any thin areas or any projecting areas in the toggles you make.  Sculpey is a brittle clay after baking in those kinds of areas....Premo, Fimo or Kato would be much stronger... in fact, they'll just bend if stressed where Sculpey will snap (those clays can also be mixed with the Sculpey to make the Sculpey stronger).
If you're just doing rounded little markers though, Sculpey (S, SS, SIII) should be fine.

Thanks Diane!  I don't think it's actual sculpey.  It was some multipack something I got to make my own needles with that I just never got around to doing...dowels anyone?  I'll have to dig it out and see what brand it is.
