Knitted knockers project on agenda
NEW WATERFORD — A local group which has been appealing to the public to make knitted knockers is preparing to face the ultimate knitters.
Island Breast Friends members will attend the knit-a-thon at the Cape Breton Regional Library on Saturday shortly before noon to give a presentation on knitted knockers.
The knitted knockers are handmade breast prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Anyone wishing to help Island Breast Friends with the knitted knockers project is asked to telephone Heather McNeil at 902-563-6364 or Joan Chiasson-MacDonald at 902-862-8732.
