Useful and ornamental needlework, knitting, and netting are capable of being made, not only sources of personal gratification, but of high moral benefit, and the means of developing in surpassing loveliness and grace, some of the highest and noblest feelings of the soul.
from The Ladies' Work Table Book, 1845

I am also working on making knit models of the side chains of the 20 naturally occurring amino acids. You can see my progress on my knitting project website which is on the wonderful Ravelry site .
