Philanthropy Event – Share A Knit

Thursday, March 10, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Share a Knit With the Guild!

Join us for another Share A Knit in support of Guild Philanthropy. Knit a pair of Knitted Knockers with Eileen Adler and Arlene Shaposhnick!
KnittedKnockers Logo SmallKnitted Knockers are a light comfortable knitted prosthetic alternative for women who have had a mastectomy. When placed in a bra, these knitted breasts take the shape and feel of a real breast. They are lighter and more comfortable than silicone prosthetic breasts. Patterns, videos and lots more information is on the Knitted Knockers website.

What to bring:

  • NEEDLES: 1 set of double point needles in US 4, 5, or 6 that are at least 6” long.
  • YARN: (about 50 yards of any of these suggested yarns makes one Knitted Knocker)
    • Skacel CoBaSi DK by HiKoo (55% Cotton, 21% Nylon (Polyamide), 16% Bamboo, 8% Silk)
    • Sublime Egyptian DK (100% cotton)
    • Tahki Cotton Classic “Light” (100% mercerized cotton)
    • Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima Fine, sport weight 100% cotton or Ultra Pima, DK
  • NOTIONS: stitch marker and a tapestry needle.

COST:  There is no cost to Guild members to participate in Share A Knit.

RSVP is required. Let Eileen know you will participate.

PARKING at the Solana Beach Library: Please park in the lower parking lot to leave the upper parking lot spaces available for the short-term visitors and physically-handicapped library patrons. Parking is NOT allowed on the street during our meeting time until the school construction is finished.
