beWoolen's Knitted & Crocheted Knockers Campaign with Laura
Please join us as we welcome our local "Knitted Knockers Ambassador" - Laura (pictured below). Laura has been knitting and donating knockers for quite some time; frequently challenging herself to knit one a day. We have joined forces with her to contribute to this worthy cause.
A great big THANK YOU to all of you have been joining us via Zoom and have donated so generously. We are continuing to stuff, finish, and sort our donations to get them out into circulation.
Stay tuned to our newsletter, we will keep you all posted about our Knitted Knockers News and will continue to meet in person for stuffing and finishing, as well as via zoom for continued social stitching together.
Knitting Knockers is surprisingly easy, so is crocheting them. Knitted knockers are made with no seam, in one piece. It is easy to grab and go, it is the best instant gratification project. The best part: every knocker you finish is going to change the way someone feels about themselves.
Outside of the yarn, you don’t need much: Size 4 or 5 DPNS, a darning needle, scissors.
Additional Information from KnittedKnockers.org ~Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. Our special volunteer knitters provide these FREE to those requesting them.
Knockers are needed in all sizes and colors so have fun making the Knockers of your choice. By far the most requested are neutral colors though and matching pairs are greatly needed.
Please note that only knockers made from approved patterns and approved yarns will be used for distribution of knockers at knittedknockers.org. Please visit the site linked below for the full list.
