FALL CHARITY KNITTING, 2016

4114eef121c43f0b3e038664a1457079

We are thinking about our women friends, neighbors, relatives, and loved ones who have battled breast cancer.  In their honor, we are offering this pattern in hopes that some of you may take this seriously, reach into your heart, and knit up some of these ‘knitted knockers’.  Those who have suffered are the voices who could tell us how much more comfortable and relieving these ‘models’ are to any other substitute.   Erin of Embraceable Ewe is working on this charity with her Girl Scouts OR you could send your effort to the address mentioned at the end of this pattern.
