Rat Dissection in Knit

3 out of 4 biologists agree: Knitted Lab Rat is the cuddliest biology project, ever! If you think so too, then this, my friend, is the art object for you.
Wow your scientist friends and colleagues with the coolness of this piece of knitted art. The rat is hand knit from an acrylic mohair blend, and his little innards are needle-felted by hand out of 100% wool. He comes pinned into his actual dissection tray, but he is not glued down, so you can take him out and cuddle him if you wish.

    We are dissecting a rat right here as we speak. I am a freshman and i hate this unit on rats because they are too closely related to a human because they are like a house pet. we named ours Gertrude. cutie:)

  2. Cool. What are the chances of me being able to commission you to make another one? My sister loves rats and this would be the singular best birthday present in the whole history of ever.

    Seriously. Please?…

  3. I was referred to this from the Skepchick site. Oh, do I love it! It combines my love a knitting with my love of science and of the ridiculous. Thank you.

  4. It’s perfect the way the wool stretches between the pins. Does anyone else have an odd (yet disgusted) nostalgia for that preservative smell after a school career filled with dissection?
