Knitting With Microbes

Title:  Knitting With Microbes

For my project I decided to knit different types of microbes to show just how different they can look. Although, I have to admit that I didn’t come up with the idea myself, I found it while looking around on Pinterest. I looked at some of the different microbes people had made and came up with the ones I thought I might be able to make. The microbes that I chose are Cyanobacteria (green), Staphylococcus (pink), Streptococcus (orange), Bacillus cereus (blue), and Pertussis (white). The goal of this project was to show, roughly, how different microbe morphology is. To make these microbes I used yarn, stuffing, and safety eyes to give them some character.
