Speaking of chutzpah… and if we weren’t, we are now… a lady named Helen recently wrote in asking if I could help her find a pattern for knitted breasts for her 86 year-old sister. That’s right, knitted breasts. For her 86 year-old sister.
Helen wrote: “My sister who is 86 has breast cancer and is booked for surgery Nov.2 As she was waiting in the office she noticed a web site that she could get a pattern for a knitted breast which she would like to obtain but I can’t seem to find it. Would you be so kind as to e-mail it to me or tell me were I can get it.”
Well, honestly, who could resist a request like that? I went website spelunking and I am happy to say that I think I’ve found the pattern in question. The knitted breasts are called “Tit Bits” and the pattern can be found on an adorable website called knitty.com — complete with accompanying poignant and funny story written by the witty titty knitter herself.

All strength and courage to Helen’s 86 year-old sister – may her surgery be successful and may she wear her knitted breasts with pride, comfort, and style!
