Knitted Knockers

So loved seeing the lovely and talented Capy win Best Short Documentary at the California Women's Film Festival. It was soooo fun seeing the documentary on the big screen and experiencing the audience's reaction! Well done Capy! So proud of you!This weekend has been one of the most memorable and amazing weekends since I moved to LA nearly a year ago.

I won my first award in the USA for my documentary Knitting for Knockers and I got to share it this incredible moment with the wonderful Barb who flew down all the way from Bellingham! We had a such blast watching the film on the big screen!

Feel free to watch it again and again on Vimeo: vimeo.com/228838504

Love this! I was working on one this week on a flight and a woman from another aisle came over to thank me for the work. She is a survivor and said it is so wonderful to know so many care. Well done KK!

Well done to all. 💖

Well done, Capy, and thank you for spreading the word xxx

Congrats!

Well deserved.

With the weather being so hot and muggy in New York right now I love my Knitted Knockers and am grateful for finding this wonderful organization. God Bless you all for making women like me all over the world more comfortable. 💗

We were so excited to sign up 191 new clinics to provide free knitted knockers to their patients at the Oncology Nurses Society Conference in Washington D.C. They can be ordered free at knittedknockers.org or ask for them at your breast clinic!

Siobhan Cassidy, LMSW, RYT
Excited to share this great resource for breast cancer patients. Knitted Knockers is a non-profit that makes soft, comfortable, knit prosthetics for women who had a mastectomy. It is free and a great alternative for comfort. #oncologysocialwork #cancercare #socialwork

I need one of these so bad for my Right Mastectomy. How can I get one?

I got a few pair for everyday use n for swimming

I love them soft super light weight

I found the best place to get mastectomy products was on the American Cancer website they have I think it's called tlc.org I'll double check that website for you when I get back inside

The Nyo h at 400 Patroon Creek as I'm there in a basket in the IV sweet for free

I love mine so so much !! Cant thank the ladies enough who made these! They are awesome

Hopefully the ones that I've knitted will look good when they are completed by the experts.

I got one of them . They are lovely and so soft x😊💕

I just finished a white cotton for my daughter. It is cooler for summer wear.

Love mine. Many thanks!

Love mine

Love mine !😚

Great expansion!!!!

Thank you for this great service!

Question..I have a pair, and I have a problem my bra keeps riding up. How do you weigh them down? Thanks

These are so much more comfortable than the "chicken cutlets"!

Started my first Knitted Knocker today using Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima Paints!

Myldy Ne, have you seen these? I would love a crochet pattern.

When I’m knitting knockers it reminds me of my Mom and her struggle with breast cancer and it helps me to know I’m giving something back.

What is the collective noun for Knitted Knockers? Something joyful, like a cavalcade or a boing of knitted knockers...
