Hey Knitters,

Here’s a way to put your knitting expertise to work for a good cause–knit prosthetic breast. In fact, this is just one of many ways of helping mastectomy breast patients. These handmade prosthetic are soft and has the feel of the real breast. Another feature of a knitted prosthetic breast is that it can be knitted in any shapes and sizes.  For more information check out Knit for A Cause Grandma’s Grapevine website at http://grandmaspinningwheel.blogspot.com/2011/04/knit-for-cause.html
