Thallium...

Apparently, it's the "International Year of Chemistry" this year and to celebrate the Royal Society of New Zealand has asked for knitters to pick an element to knit. Each square has to be 20cm x 20cm in a light coloured wool and the elements symbol and atomic number are knitted separately and stitched on after. To read more about this project click here

I picked thallium as I saw a great movie a couple of years ago called "The Young Poisoners Handbook" in which a young man killed various people with thallium - not a nice way to die...
