Charity Knitting

2016 Charity Knitting

Giving back to McHenry County is an annual goal of our knitting guild. Every year our Charity Committee suggests projects for different groups in our area. Due to the generosity of our knitters we are able to donate to the Nursery Department of Centegra Hospital and Sage Cancer Center in McHenry 

2016 Special Project -- Knitted Knockers

go to www.knittedknockers.org for patterns

Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. Our special volunteer knitters provide these free to those requesting them. Knitted knockers can be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing.
