Emily Stoneking of aKNITomy would like to welcome you to her "icky and cuddly world of knitted anatomy, where biology no longer smells like formaldehyde, but like your favorite sweater." The artist creates her series of classic junior high dissections out of silk / wool blend yarns and frame-mounts them with an accuracy and elegance that would probably earn her an A+ in both bio and home ec classes.

The frog dissection featured above has a hand knit head, legs, and flayed mid-section, with needle-felted innards. He's pinned to an 8 x 10 wood frame. Stoneking also knits dissections of lab rats, bats, and--my 7th grade illumination that I'm about as accurate with a scalpel as a blind man with the tremors--earthworms.
