Lovely story this, from our local paper The Argus (thanks, The Blonde):
"WHEN it comes to knitting most people would settle for a pair of gloves, socks or possibly a jumper. But Audrey Horncastle prefers to spend her time on something a little more exotic. For more than three years the industrious 84-year-old has churned out more than 100 knitted breasts... "
The crafting community has been knitting these boobs for a while now - they are to help teach new mothers how to breastfeed, as knitted 'breasts' are far cheaper than the synthetic models which surgeries have to buy... and less scary-looking!
You can get the 'breast' knitting pattern on the website of the Lactation Consultants of Great Britain (pdf).
