Are you looking for a new knitting project? How about a basal ganglia or a complete circulatory system? We came upon an inspiring and clever gallery at Discover Magazine's Web site and it made us wish we were that crafty.

The Bizarre and Brilliant World of Knitted Science asks, "What happens when science nerds get hold of knitting needles and crochet hooks? Marvelous, wonderful things, that's what."

Featuring the work of Emily Stoneking, Avital Pinnick and several others, you can teach your child to knit and teach them the Periodic Table of Elements, while you are at it!
