Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And I have a story of three mothers my age nearby who discovered they had breast cancer and started their fight against this disease. Well, when I read about the October event to raise awareness through yarnbombing, of course, I wanted to participate.

After I finally managed to knit 2 pairs of boobies I also made some special BCA tags. This Saturday October 1st I set my alarm and went out early in the morning to yarn boob these benches. They look a bit lumpy in the picture, but I was satisfied with the result.

O yeah, I managed to make a short video before installing them:

Status: one pair was gone after a couple of hours, the other pair status unknown.

A knitting beginners mistake

 Ok, so I just wanted to share how big of a dunce I felt when having trouble with the knitted boobies pattern on the posterous site. I also participated in the globaltitknit by knitting some boobies, but it took me a while (actually three tries!) before I finally realized that "(k1, kfb) to end of row" means repeat the stuff in parentheses and not just k1 and then kfb to end of row. If you do so, like I did, you'll end up with the cauliflower like thingy on the right. Good for a sponge bath flower or something else...
