Yuck! Posted on August 7, 2007 by Anna Any idea what’s living under your fingernails? This is the first “human” bit that I’ve ever knitted, and I think it came out fairly well. At least well enough to be mildly revolting. What’s lurking below the nail will be revealed a little later.

Holy Cow Girl!! You are too much!!
Lovely. If anyone had that much green growing down under, the nail wouldn’t be so round and pretty. But from a purely pharmacological point of view, I can’t wait to see what species lies beneath.
the knuckle-fro (not to be confused with toe-fro) is a nice touch.
Ew. But I like it :)
it is lovely gross!! reminds me of a certain commercial!!
i love the textured ridges you created that stand in for the knuckles. and also the way that the securing seam for the nail also simulates the “moon” or white semi circle, of the nail.
And of course, the cute fungi are already peering over from their secret hide-a-way!
Thank you! I thought about making the nail less pretty, but then I also kind of liked the contrast of the pretty pink and white finger with the little green fungi, or bacteria– I haven’t decided exactly what they are yet.
Made me giggle.
cute little greenies! i hope we get to see the rest of them soon!
Clever idea, but I’m still kind of traumatized by the “Digger the Dermatophyte” anti-nail-fungus medicine ad campaign that ran a couple years ago.
please let the things living under the nail be CUTE.
Yeah, I actually hated that campaign, and I’d love to avoid comparisons. I’ve thought about changing the color of the creatures to something more brownish, or perhaps even purple…
You goofball, this is so cool and creepy!
