Word of the day

I came across the expression knitted science in a friend’s Facebook status report recently. Needless to say it’s a whole world that has hitherto eluded me - a world set out in a recent issue of Discover magazine. From a crochet coral reef to a knitted frog spleen, it is all there. Needless to say, latter day anti-vivisectionists have seized on knitted and crocheted substitutions for animal dissections (such as that frog). Amazing.
