Knitted Knockers

Meet Gail, Super volunteer since 2016. Not even the devastating lava flows in Hawaii stopped her from caring for others! What a blessing her and her group make to so many in Hawaii!
It’s just retired me knitting away here in Pahoa, HI. I call my “group” Lava You Knitters for the lava river that flowed through my subdivision two years ago. My mother, who also knits, says it has kept her sane over the years. I understand that. I started working for this charity on August 25, 2016. My total orders filled to date is 874.

Thank you for what you do! I was a recipient of a set of these. So appreciated that someone took the time to make them.

Congratulations. I’m one those volunteer and make KK. It’s a God thing

Thank you so much for what you do words cannot express the gratitude I have for you

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I too am a recipient of Knitted Knockers. Words can not explain the joy you all bring to us. When I received mine, I was so excited, I looked at my husband and he said he had not seen me that happy since I was diagnosed. You all are God sent, all of God's blessings to all of you ❤

Thank you for all you do it means so much. 💗

THANK-YOU & GOD BLESS YOU!!! ❤️

Hola soy de Uruguay tejedora dos agujas un abrazote

That’s awesome.

I've had mine since 2008! Still use it….I've re-stuffed it with fresh 'stuffing' several times over the years. But it is great and so comfortable! Thank you from this Cancer Survivor!

Knitted Knockers

Wow! What a guy. I dare you to read this without weeping. Got this inquiry with a request for a knocker for this beautiful woman.

My Bride of almost 30 years is a TWO time breast cancer survivor. Her first diagnosis occurred while I was active duty in the U.S. Air Force and was HORRENDOUS! I watched my beautiful bride escalate downhill for months. I would leave for work in the morning as she was sitting on the couch in her PJ’s having coffee; I would come home 10-13 hours later and she would still be on the couch in her pajamas. She was self-conscious, thought she was ugly, and afraid I wouldn’t want her anymore, It was terrible. The second time she was diagnosed, almost 10 years later, the Radiologist called me at work because (name removed for privacy) had told her she could reach her through me. I had to break the news to her. We cried together for hours. She had a left breast mastectomy and reconstruction. Unfortunately, the reconstruction has left her uneven and she regularly wears a “pad” to even her appearance.

The below is a post that I placed of Facebook and a picture of my “Sweetie.”

Beauty has very little to do with a Woman’s weight, boob size, hair, clothes or make-up. A beautiful woman will be beautiful with or without make-up. She’ll be beautiful dressed in a burlap bag or a ball gown. A beautiful woman can be anorexic or plus size. She can be a size “A” or double “D;” wearing high heels or tennis shoes. Beauty is hard to define specifically but we all know it when we see it. Because true beauty emanates from within. When I met and married my Bride more than 25 years ago, she was a size 0, and she had the sexiest legs I had ever seen. After moving her all across the country every couple years in the Air Force, child birth, withstanding my deployments in harm’s way, and two – count ‘em – TWO, bouts of cancer, she’s no longer a size 0 and her hair has turned a new shade. Her appearance has changed because of age, cancer, and she certainly owns those worry lines from motherhood and my deployments. Lately, I have been very pleased to see plus sized and more realistic mannequins included with the size 0’s in Target, and on the News tonight, I saw CVS has started a campaign with un-retouched model photos and featuring models without make-up. I think these efforts are good for Women and young girls. Every Woman (and young girl) is not a perfect model! Appearance, consists of physical qualities and those don’t last forever. Don’t misunderstand me, there is nothing wrong with desirability or being physically attracted to someone, that’s usually how romance starts; but things, and life, change. How many military personnel have come home from combat missing a part of their anatomy? How many Women have physically changed after childbirth…? How many men grow a gut…? That’s life! So my question to all, when you look at your partner without make-up, fancy clothes, or dyed hair, do you see beauty or appearance? I am a truly blessed man; when I look at my Bride, I still see the most beautiful woman on the planet. I hope you as blessed as me.

We saw the story on WMAR news tonight. Are your “knitted knockers” size specific or adjustable? Can you help her at all? I know she wears a 35-36D. But the pad she wears is only about inch thick…

Oh my what a wonderful thoughtful caring man. I so hope one of you lovely ladies can help him and his beautiful wife.

What a great love story! 🥰

Amazing story

What a beautiful tribute to both of them!!

I know that the appropriate folks will see this – I turned in a knitted pair of D-cup knockers 2-3 weeks ago at Apple Yarns (Bellingham) for stuffing. If they've already been sent out, I can get going on another pair; takes me about 3 weeks. Cordially, Freddi 💕 PS: Is there a color preference, in case we don't already have any "in stock", and we're making them upon request? Thanks!

What a beautiful tribute to his wife and that he’s there for her 💯%. I’m confident that the wonderful ladies at Knitted Knockers will help her.

What an amazing story. A picture of true love. If he contacts the agency I'm sure they can get you hooked up. I don't know how to knit yet but hopefully this time next year I'll be making them

She’s so blessed to have you by her side!

I just fell in love with both of yall. Both of you are as tough as nails, resilient and nothing makes you heal like love. May God be with you.

What a heartwarming story. Wishing the best for this couple.

One of the cool things about knitted knickers is that they are VERY adjustable. They come in the different cup sizes, and then you can add or take out stuffing until it is the best shape for you. ❤️

💕💕 sending them heaps of love from across the pond 💚🇬🇬 both of them are truly inspirational 💕

What a wonderful man. They are unfortunately few and far between. I too am a 2 time BC survivor. My husband has been with me they the whole thing. Heard many tales during chemo on men walking out on Sick women. Happens all the time. I hated my reconstruction so I had it taken out. I feel I am no longer a women, but a thing they have transformed me into. A shell of my former self. I appreciate what knitter knickers has done for me to give the appearance of normal when I had to dress up.

This is love!❤️ This is why I will continue to make the knockers.

What an awesome supportive husband. Xx

What a beautiful couple, and the love shows. Enjoy your beautiful life together

Www. Knitted knickers.org

I needed this

God bless this wonderful couple 🙏🏻 God bless the knitters… I had breast cancer 18 years ago. My left breast was 2 cup sizes smaller . About 3 years ago I got my size B knitted knocker. What a difference. I just had breast cancer on my right breast. I’m still using the kk I got 3 years ago. I take the stuffing out and wash it. You ladies are so kind and have made such a difference in so many who don’t always feel good! Thank you 🙏🏻

What a beautiful story. What a beautiful couple. P.S. Even the "perfect models" are not perfect. Makeup and air-brushing just cover up our inner beauty.

What a beautiful story and couple!!

Beautiful ❤

Thank you for seeing your wife and women as human beings..not objects. She is a lucky woman. As are you. Prayers

I love how this veteran loves and cares for his beautiful wife. He could mentor a lot of couples with his actions and beliefs on what love and compassion is. ❤️😍

Best wishes to you two!!!

Sad news. So grateful that knitted knockers made a difference to her in the Philippines.Today we received some sad news from the Philippines. One of the ladies who received knitted knockers from us earlier in the year has sadly died. Her daughter contacted us to tell us, and also to thank us for providing her mother with renewed self confidence. She added ‘She was always self conscious about not having a breast and used to cover herself with a scarf. But once she started wearing knitted knockers she became more self confident. Here is a photo. You can see that she is not wearing a scarf.’ What lovely words and a reminder of why we do what we do. #knittedknockers #breastcancer #breastcancer

Yeah!!! ❤️🍁

A very worthy cause to support!!

Fabulous ❤️🙏

Great cause!! Knitted knockers is wonderful

What a wonderful organization thank you so much God bless all of you women

These are so important for those of us who have had a mastectomy! They are comfortable, lightweight and you can adjust the size because of the batting they send along. You can add or subtract the batting as needed. if you use them in your bathing suit though, pin them at the top and the bottom so they don’t float away, LOL. They don’t charge but I know a donation for supplies and shipping is greatly appreciated. ❤️❤️❤️

I love my knitted knocker! Such an amazing organization!

Excellent!

♥️👍🏾🙏🤩👌wear your knitted product every day!
