These days, a march on Washington, D.C. isn’t complete without the requisite headwear.
Heidi Arjes, a microbiology postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University and knitting enthusiast, is combining two of her passions to help science advocates make a bold statement during the upcoming March for Science on April 22.
Arjes, who identifies herself as both an optimist and a yarn addict, started “science-knitting” over 14 years ago. Her early designs, which she mostly made for friends and family, consisted of neurons, human organs and simple organisms like bees and mice. Now, she’s using the skills she’s honed over the years to unite members of the science community in order to generate public interest in their respective fields. You can see her work showcased on the website Craftimism.
