Knitted Knockers

So, you don't want to make baby blankets or hats or you just aren't in to taking on a shawl project at this point.  Well, how about knitting up a couple of knitted knockers?

The mission of Knitted Knockers is to provide women who have had mastectomies with knitted breast prostheses – completely free of charge.  Knitted Knockers needs knitters and crocheters to make knockers using “approved” yarns, and they also need cash donations to cover shipping fees.  www.KnittedKnockers.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run entirely by volunteers.

Skacel has collaborated with Makers’ Mercantile to create Knocker Kits, and Makers’ Mercantile is offering direct from the vendor pricing!

For only $9.95 you will receive 1 hank of HiKoo® CoBaSi DK (which makes up to 4 Knitted Knockers), the Knitted Knocker knitting pattern*, and free shipping in the US!  Further, skacel will donate $4.00 to Knitted Knockers for EVERY kit purchased!  This pricing is only good until February 12th

Reviving this group came at the perfect time.  On January 1st I lost another friend to colon cancer! She too was an amazing warrior and pers, who at 43 leaves behind her husband, two little girls, her parents and siblings.   I wanted to share her words with you all because as we start the new year they are food for thought!
