About

A Crochet Heart

That was the very first one. The body part that kicked this whole crazy thing off. A request for lungs shortly followed, then a brain, a liver, a pancreas, and before I knew it, I'd stumbled into a niche.

I've always been an anatomy nerd, and I'm rarely without a crochet hook on my person. I've learned so much in making these, and I'd like to share the fascination with others.

These pieces end up in medical offices for uses in demonstrations, or to explain procedures. They're gifts for students and teachers, Weird Al Yankovich fans (pancreas), Big Lebowski fans (severed toe), loved ones recovering from surgeries, fans or horror, anatomy nerds, and anyone that appreciates a little creepy-cuteness.
