Comment on Facebook

Knitted Knockers Thank you for sharing to this group❤❤! The Philippines has the highest Breast Cancer cases in Asia and majority of women choose no reconstruction for different reasons, many due to financial hardship. Every recipient is so appreciative of the gift of knitted knockers as evidenced by Juliet's words.

Knitted Knockers- Are you Offended?

Comment on Facebook

Hi from Calgary, Alberta. I am a Knocker knitter.

Yes!

I still think knit tits would have been awesome, but knockers work too!

Always happy to answer tje stranger out in public who asks what I am knitting and I can reply "knockers." Then they hear all about the program. Fun to make and happy to make something someone wants and needs.

I received a pair five years ago actually two pairs and they have saved my life and made me feel so much better. Bless y’all 🙌♥️😘

It’s a fun name!! Nice to smile rather than frown about losing breasts!!

Who beautiful lady😍❤

Hello beautiful lady from Texas😍❤

Thank you so much for my Knitted Knockers!! Much Love from PEI, Canada<3

"Scale maille" is what I used for the dragon knocker.

Hi to your hubby 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️

I didn't have a pattern. I used the crochet pattern, and added scales every other stitch in every other row.

Hi Barb! Just tuned in to see the dragon knocker! Love you oodles!

Hi Barb

Alive Sara Lee

Hi Barb!

Hello from Florida

If they are offended by the name then they can consider themselves lucky!

Miss your videos, how can I set up notifications on my iPad?

Thankful Recipient

You’re live, it’s all good!!

Yes Barb we are able to hear

Knitted Knockers

Meet the Great Knockers Again Group serving the women of Colorado.
Colorado’s Great Knockers Again group just fulfilled their 1,000th request via the Knitted Knockers website! Gathering at Piney Creek Yarn in Centennial, CO, the team serves the metro Denver area from south of Parker, north to Longmont and Brighton, and west to Lakewood! Our group of dedicated crafters began hosting monthly meetings in October 2017, gathering monthly in camaraderie to create Knitted Knockers. At each subsequent month’s meeting Knockers were collected, then stuffed, packaged and mailed — 6 sets by the end of that first year. We built relationships with medical clinics and recruited new members – helping to fulfill requests and distribute 975 Knockers by the end of 2018. By the end of 2019 we had supplied a total of 1,597 knitted and crocheted Knockers to Colorado breast cancer survivors! At the start of 2020, our Great Knockers Again crew totaled 30 members and we were stocking 16 Denver-area medical clinics and participating in a wide range of breast cancer awareness events to help spread the word about Knitted Knockers.

In pre-Covid times, we held two annual Knit-a-Thon events — hosting 85 attendees the first year and 110 crafters at our second event. It was heartwarming to see so many sharing an enthusiasm for knitting and crocheting mobilized to help stock us with Knockers! New friendships formed at our Knit-a-Thons soon led to the launch of a second monthly meeting gathering one evening per month at our local library, or as they like to say: “We Knit Our Knockers at Night.”

If the safer-at-home Covid-19 restrictions have shown us anything, it is the generosity and thoughtfulness of our crafters. With a “What else do I have to do?” mentality, Great Knockers Again members have dedicated their pandemic time to “stay home and craft on.” When we were able to safely collect their creations, more than 200 Knockers were delivered to a socially distanced table outside our usual meeting place, Piney Creek Yarn! After gathering so many completed Knockers, our next month’s project was a “Grab and Go” stuffing event – providing volunteers all the pieces needed to stuff and package 455 Knockers for distribution.

With our Knitted Knockers supplies well stocked, we are dedicating the 2020 holiday season to creating chemo hats for clinics serving men and women fighting cancer, as well as providing acrylic/wool blend hats, scarves and gloves that won’t freeze when they get wet for the “Hats for the Homeless” project. Since shifting to creating hats our volunteers have already supplied 34 chemo hats to clinics and are working on a variety of warm items which will be delivered directly to Denver area homeless camps.

Thanks to the dedication, enthusiasm, generosity and flexibility of all of our crafters, we have continually shifted focus to respond to our community during these unpredictable times. We thank Knitted Knockers Support Foundation for their tireless support and advice.

Thank you Great Knockers Again for providing comfort and dignity to those in need!

Comment on Facebook

Definitely. Go to website.

Yes

Good to know difference between a little overstuffed and baseball stuffed…

How long does all that last ?!

I live in Southern Vermont. This is such a wonderful wonderful blessing.

Such blessings!!! I look forward to being in touch. It fills me with all of the emotions. I had a double mastectomy a year and a half ago and chose flat closure (no reconstruction).

Love this information, so important! Good job, Mom and Barb. Thanks for sharing this with volunteers.

Yes it’s so importat to stuff it properly. Thank you Barb & Laureen for this much required session

So thankful for both my sets normal and swimming

I've got 5 done….still knitting on more before I send them off to you! This is great information!

Y'all came to me in my sleep last night

I finished my first knocker but was unsure about filling it. I had a lumpectomy and just want to try to make myself look a bit more even. I take a DD

Are knockers still available for survivors?

Thank you for this demonstration.

Thank you Barb and Laureen. I appreciate your tips on how to stuff them. I'm part of the Knitted Knockers of Canada group.

Thank you all for your Generosity!!!

Yes see you and Maureen!!!

Perfect!

I cut up shower scrunches for Aqua Knockers

Hello to you all

I’ve used up 30 lbs in 5 years….maybe 200per box?

I love sending mine to Bellingham so they can be filled by a pro.

You’re live

Love my Knitted Knockers 😘

Well for the life of me I can’t seem to find the poll button to create a poll!!! So please comment below if you are interested in participating in a weekly Zoom session with other Knitted Knocker Fans. You don’t have to be a knitter or crocheter but just a kind person who would like to connect with others to "shoot the breeze". All topics for discussion allowed not just knitted knocker stuff. You can knit or crochet while visiting, listen or share your favorite recipes, tv shows, knitted knocker stuff, etc. No politics though. If enough people are interested we will try to facilitate it. Please comment with either yes or no below or tell us more if you want in your comment :-). We will post on FB if we decide to pursue it with how to get the zoom link to join in. For more info listen to the FB live Barb just did (1/21/21), Its about 1/2 way through. See MoreSee Less
