This Saturday – (double booking)
10 am- tit a long –
Jean Blum from Wishard joined us last month. She was very excited about our involvement with her patients. She gave us some suggestions as well.
They do not need the A or B cups, so make the 3 larger sizes. Also consider doing some sets, as some women have a double mastectomy. The pattern has an option for 1 piece, which I love as no sewing it together when you finish knitting. Also, go down a needle size on the back side (per the pattern) as this makes a flat back side that will be concave when completed and it will not irritate the incision. Please go ahead and fill them with polyester fiberfill and leave a long trail for us to close it after we add the weight. No need to knit I-cord or add the button for a nipple, the women don’t care about that.
Jean was very excited to receive the first delivery a short time ago and will give us feed back as we go along on our project.
Thank you for helping the cause and hope you can join us Sat. If not just drop your donation off at the shop, Susan has a large basket for us to use. As they come in I will add the weight, finish the opening and deliver them to Jean.
Also at 10 am- start the Bee Keepers Quilt- go to Ravelry for the pattern. I will have mixed bags of sock yarn for you to purchase.
