Knitted Knockers!

May 24, 2019

Knockers are perfect for summer knitting!

Knockers 

From the Knitted Knockers website: 

"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. Knitted knockers can be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing."

Never made a Knocker but are interested? Click here for knit and crochet patterns.

It's important that only approved yarns are used.  We carry an assortment of approved yarns: Cotton Supreme DK, Ultra Pima, CleoModern Cotton DK, and Bamboo Pop. .  

 Yarns for knockers

We're a collection point for Knockers so you can drop off your finished Knockers (unstuffed preferred) any time.

Year of the Pig and Pig Mania!

February 04, 2019

Chinese New Year is on February 5th and 2019 is the year of the Pig!  In honor of the Pig, we are providing free patterns for either a knitted (pic 1) or crocheted pig (pic 2): 

 

What can you do with these little pigs?  Play Pigmania!  Pigmania is a super fun classic!  All you need are 2 pigs.  

The object of this game is to be the first to score 100 points using two “Pigs” as dice.
On your turn, you throw the pigs and hope they end up in a scoring position.
If they do, you decide whether to keep the points earned in your turn by passing the pigs to the next player.
Or you can choose to “roll again” but if you roll a "Pig Out” you lose your turn and any points earned in this turn.
Scoring:
The pigs used for the game are made in fingering weight yarn. The patterns are free! Just mention it at checkout and specify whether you're interested in the knit or crochet pattern.
Need help with the pattern?  We're offering classes to make these little pigs.
Knit a Pig
Tuesdays Feb 12, 19 and 26,  7 to 9pm
Crochet a Pig
Tuesdays Mar 19, 26 and April 2, 7 to 9pm
