Knit a Tit and the Party in Pink...............

Oh what a great afternoon, I haven't laughed so much in absolutely ages. Armed with some pink wool and some DPNs the mission was to Knit a Tit and raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness thanks to Iknit (Gerard and Craig) and Sue who was teaching the workshop.

So the aim was to knit one of the above while having a little fun and to help it along the way a few pink bubbles. To start it was a small icord that could be tied into a knot to form a nipple and then it was knitting in the round on DPN's and increasing as you went to make the front of the breast. A bit tricky to start with when you only have 6sts but a few increases later and it gets much easier.

So with the help of the bubbles we get on our way. It is at this point that I think I should mention Sue had kindly brought along nipple piercings for those who wanted them ......for the prosthesis I might add rather than the knitters.

Checking them out for size. And making a right tit of myself (or was it my left?).

Once the back and front were knitted it was time to stuff the breast into boob shape. However, it was at this point that we discovered that we were just a little short of any stuffing when Sue had the great idea of using the ballons that she had brought along.

What can I say, must be the cheapest boob job in town.

If you want to knit a tit yourself or for someone you know the pattern is available free on Knitty.com Issuefall05

Sounds like an amazing day - and for a good cause - I am really impressed you manage to knit after the pink champagne.
