Is it a bird, is it a plane?.. it's a strange crocheted neuron.

There is a project going on in the UK at the moment which is asking knitters and crocheters to have a go at making a yarny neuron. These neurons are going to then be used as a large piece of art work that can demonstrate the damage that occurs in the brain after a stroke.

So I've had a go at following the crochet pattern on the Knit a Neuron website and this is what I ended up with. I'm not too sure that it is the best attempt at a neuron, but hopefully it'll be included in the project and may at some point in the near future help raise funds for the Head Injury Therapy Endowment Fund before being homed in the University of Bristol's brain imaging centre. Why don't you join in the neuron fun and try making one yourself?
