Charity – Knitted Knockers
June 3, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Our next Charity Knit In is planned for June 3, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at St. Anne DeBeaupre, 2810 Link Road, Houston, Texas 77009. I hope many of you will be able to attend. We have a comfortable facility that will accommodate as many as choose to attend.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to knitatnightguildcharity@gmail.
com so I can plan for supplies and patterns. We will be kicking off a new charity knitting opportunity – Knitted Knockers (soft, comfortable, knit prosthetics for breast cancer survivors). We will discuss whether there is enough interest in this project for KANG to provide these to some area hospitals. There are specific guidelines regarding patterns and yarns that must be followed to insure the finished product is as comfortable as possible for the recipient. I will provide the appropriate yarn to get you started. Please visit knittedknockers.org for more information.
If you plan on working on this project, you will need size 4 needles. I have been working on making Knitted Knockers for about a month getting a range of sizes ready for delivery to Ben Taub. In making these “knockers”, I’ve used both dpns and a 40 inch circular. Either of these work. You do need needles with good points because you will be making lots of increases. The prettiest increase on the finished product is a make 1 left. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
You may work on the charity project of your choice at the Knit In – but, your project does need to be for charity. This event will be Pot Luck as we have done in the past. There has always been a wide variety of tasty dishes!
Please join us for the fun – snacking, knitting, and door prizes! I look forward to seeing many of you as we join together to –
Do what we can, with what we have, where we are
