This is amazing work! Great colour, I really like it. The brain is rarely a 'warm, fuzzy,' rather it's diagramed and sliced up and represents the ultimate in logic. Yours is whimsical, actually fun even, it's really nice.

An absolutely amazing piece of work! The detail fascinates me, so realistic.


As a quilter and knitter, I certainly appreciate your wonderful unique art...beautifully done!


Marvelous! I love it that the corpus callosum is a zipper, and the frontal lobes made of more complex variegated yarn.


Unbelievable. I stand in awe.

Oh PLEASE--give us a pattern!

I second the request for a pattern. You rock!!!!


Wow that is amazing!


Wow! Love the colours and the jellyfish bit. Brilliant.

It's gorgeous. I'm not much of a knitter, but I've got my own embroidered and appliqued brains on stabbed.wordpress.com.

Graham Mackie

This is awesome. I really want one.


OMG! Fantastic beyond words. A pattern would be so appreciated. I would love to try to make this for my brother's med school graduation.

To me, the best part is the corpus callosum... represented as a zipper!


Please PLEASE PLEASE send me the pattern. My 12yo daughter has just gotten a tumor removed (successfully--YES!!!!) and I want to knit this for the doctors.

I have admired this piece of work since the moment I saw it, which must have been two years ago. I am sure people are clamoring the pattern. I can't knit, but if you release the secret, please sign me up.

By the way, for a coupe of years, I have featured this piece on my rotating gallery at http://www.brainmapping.org with other interesting brain related artworks.

Hello Matie Trewe

By strolling on the website Dark Roasted Blend I read and saw your knitted brain and the knitted digestive system of Matie Trewe. It made me laugh loudly. It must be hard to imitate the colors and the forms of the human body. For the Dutch newspaper the NRC Handelsblad (the third biggest of the country) I would like to write an article about it. It would be great if I could ask you a few questions about this project somewhere next week. Maybe you can also help me to find Trewe. On her website it says that she lives in Eugene, Oregon too. Do you know her? kind regards Jan Maarten Deurvorst, Amsterdam

This is incredibly cool How on earth did you figure out how to create such a complex pattern. Love to have a copy. I had brain surgery (successful) about 12 years ago and this would be a great explanation tool. Also a challenge as a knitter.


Dr. Karen Norbert, are you a member of Ravelry? If not, please join us! http://ravelry.com/


did you know you've just been features on bbc's QI!


That is so cool. I would LOVE to get a copy of the pattern!! My hubby would love it.

For art we have to describe what this quote means and we need some help. any ideas?

I am doing a study of "Faith and Reason" written by Pope John Paul II. Tonight we were talking about objectivity and subjectivity. Art was the example used to discuss one's own perception of good art and bad art and the universal perception of it. I am confused by the subject of art. I personally think good and bad art is subject to one's own personal opinion.

Can anyone explain to me what is 'good art'? Like Michelango, Picaso & Van Gogh versus modern art? And by whose standards is 'good art' classified as such?

I've never taken an art class, I only draw privately once in a while but I don't consider myself an artist. What books or websites can I go to to learn about art?

Never frown, when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
