Dansk:  I love your crochet chain icing.  Did you crochet it on or make then chain and then sew it?

Love it.  Good for you!

Sorry for the delay.  Things should go a little faster from here on out, partially because I put my nose to the grindstone and spent about eight hours yesterday knitting small intestines.

Large intestine:
Remove stitch marker, K5, replace marker.
*-* = "base row"  
Repeat base row 13 times.
Working exclusively with white, *K1, K2tog 5 times, K1.*  
Pick up the unworked white strand and work * to * again, then K7.  
Pick up the first white strand and K7.  
*With pink, K in front and back of next five stitches, K1 pink, K1 white, repeat from * once more.  (this will make a lot more sense after you've done it a couple of times.  Basically, you're doing a decrease row with white, knitting one row, then doing an increase row with pink to get back to the regular number of stitches.)
Knit base row 13 times.
Repeat from ** 11 more times, pausing occasionally to lightly stuff the intestine with polyfil.  Switch to size 8 needles and knit another 5 repeats, for a total of 17 sections.

K 8 basic rows,
K1 white, K8 pink, K3 sts onto waste yarn, slip these sts back to the left needle and knit again with pink, finish as per basic row and K 4 more basic rows.


Knit 1 white, K5 pink.  Cut white yarns leaving two short tails.  Finish stuffing the colon, tie the two white ends together and tuck inside.  Cut the pink yarn, leaving about a 5' tail and thread onto a tapestry needle.  Fold the tube so that the yarn tail comes out the right edge and the dpns are parallel.  Weave together ten stitches (five from the needle in front and five from the needle in back, 14 sts remaining).

Knit the next two stitches on the front needle (one of these should be the central white stitch), then place them on a stitch holder.  Place the next two stitches from the back needle (including the other white stitch) on the holder as well.  Knit five stitches.

Weave together the remaining stitches as before.  

Transfer the four stitches on the stitch holder to a dpn and knit 1 1/2" of I-cord (still using the cut yarn tail).

 K2tog twice, slide sts to other end of needle, K2tog, thread the yarn end through the last loop, pull it tight and use the tapestry needle to thread the tail back through the I-cord, hiding it and softening the point of the appendix.  Trim the yarn end.
The finished appendix.  

The finished colon.

Don't worry about the three funny colored stitches:  they will be the opening to the small intestine.

Oh, you mean Politically Incorrect Party.  I was really excited, I thought someone was throwing a party with a theme of the ratio of the circumfrence of a circle to its diameter.

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.

Actually, leather is 3rd anniversary.  And wait, you can't eat Jell-O but you can wear leather?  I will never understand vegetarians.

How 'bout the PVC anniversary?  Or the dildo anniversary!

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.
