One of my brothers finally put in a knitting request:
Yes, you see correctly. That is a KNITTED SKELETON!
I think knitting a sweater for my brother's 6'6" frame would be less of a hassle than this project. And also take less time. What are you, a pediatrician or something? Those must be some soft bones... They might need a procedure! Or prescription for Fosamax... Oh wait, that is for older patients...

ETA: No I did NOT knit this crazy piece... yet! HAHA!
