Knitted Microfossil #1

I know, I know, what the heck took me so long? I've started out with a bisaccate palynomorph at the suggestion of palygirl on Ravelry. I modeled this one after Abies pollen but, in general, most conifers take this form. The two spongiform bladders make for a lightweight grain that is easily dispersed by wind.

That is so great. I would love to have a christmas tree covered in bisaccates of all sizes-- great fun!
