Sharing the knitting love...
I'd love for you to read a little about Knitted Knockers:
( from their website: knittedknockers.org )

"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."

I have had many knitters come in to purchase the approved cotton yarn for this project, and I am now a drop-off site for finished "knockers".

As you know, there are many, many ways to share your knitting, both yarn and time, with those in need. If you're so inclined, I have some samples in the shop, and would be happy to share more information with you, or visit the website for patterns and approved yarn list! knittedknockers.org

And, don't forget - I am always accepting donations of any yarn, to be passed along to lots of different knitters who knit for those in need, teach others, and who are in need themselves.
