Real yarn porn

I have knitted a breast. And I've done it for a good reason.

I've started the Knit-a-Tit knit-a-long to raise breast cancer awareness among knitters and to create comfortable and pretty breast prosthesis for women whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. I'm told that these handmade breasts are more comfortable, and comforting, than the traditional silicone prosthesis. All funds and boobs collected by the KAL will be donated to the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk for breast cancer research this summer.

So now you've found a use for that little hank of angora you've been petting in your stash. Or an excuse to buy some new yarn! Knit big ones and little ones, colorful ones, and fuzzy ones. Check out the KAL to find out how! Then steal the button and link to your blog or website.
