And I love knowing they are going for a good cause. The whole story behind the pattern is definitely worth reading so please do look it up when you have time at The Knitting Experience. For those of you who are interested in making and donating some but are crocheters there is also the crocheted version of the pattern available.
Another good site to look up is Knitty Titty Committee where their goal is to help mastectomy patients obtain free or low cost knitted prostheses. The silicone ones are heavy and can cause sweating and irritation so these knitted or crocheted versions make nice alternatives. They say the ladies enjoy them when they are wild and funky so have fun with them! One of my knit night girls even put a tiny silver ring on hers to pierce the nipple. I mean ~ why not?!
