A friend sent me a link to a news story about a group of women who knit prostheses for mastectomy patients. This is such a great idea! Here's a link to the story:
Breast Prothesis Knitters
Here's a link to more information, including instructions for both knit and crocheted prostheses:

Who woulda thunk of that! Thanks for sharing, Sandy. I believe my mind is boggled by the concept of a hand-knit breast prosthesis, but in a good way...

Many years ago when I was a young wife my older neighbour taught me a similar idea..
her husband had a hernia and she had crocheted him a support truss.Often I saw this "interesting" item on her drying line not realising what it could be.Their doctor had thought it a remarable idea when he had examined her husband for an unrelated complaint..Perhaps she should have patened her creation...

I would like to see one of these crocheted breasts. I crochet but haven't a clue how to do that.
