Could you take a shot next to something that we might all have?  Like a regular dinner plate or your hand?  I am very upset that I do not know what a breast would be like...

Will do!

In the mean time, here's what I've got so far; B cups on the left, C cups on the right and center.  (Ironically, I cleared all the mugs and notebooks off the table to take the shot!)

I've added this to my to-do list.  I know they say you can knit them in any color, but I really wonder if someone would want green? Cheesy  I do have some white and pink DK cottons that are soft and lovely.

Green may not be for every woman, but I think some women would feel like it was just peppy and fun enough to lift their spirits, like a secret next to their heart.  Some women might appreciate the practicality of being able to spot the bewb in the laundry hamper.  And all will appreciate something soft, comfortable, and made with good wishes.  If green is what you've got - go for it!  (Altho' white and pink are quite nice, too.)

Here's a couple of shots of the C and B cups I've been making, with a tape measure for scale.

Here's the stuffed C cup.  Looks like 3-4" deep, and pretty close to the suggest 6" across:



And here's the unstuffed C and the B cups next to each other.  



(I mistakenly stopped one row short on the first C I made, and kept the rest the same, for consistency.  The Cs are 99 stitches around at their widest point, on the purl rounds.  The Bs are 90 stitches at their widest point.  Doesn't seem like much of a difference, but it is measurable!)

Thanks, yofi...I think I am ok now!  I tested my gauge and found that I am getting 5 stitches per inch so I reduced my rounds on the first pair to get a C and next pair, I will go to size 3 needles...I must be knitting these too loose...

I have a nice mocha color that I want to do...and a soft brown as well...it is great that we are doing this during Cancer Awareness Month...

cmouse!!!  Any color would be welcomed, I am sure...

D'oh!  Having to frog back a few rows.  I kept putting down and picking up the knitting last.ight, and on the second purl row started knitting backwards!

Yay!  And welcome!

We're in the midst of a major fundraiser at work, but I've started the pink yarn and should have at least one by the weekend.

These are kind of addictive....  I've got a couple of other projects nearing a deadline, and REALLY should be cleaning the house and garden.

But I keep picking up the #4 needles....

I am drawn to this project but I'm also strapped for cash. I have some brown Lily Sugar & Cream cotton yarn. Would that be too rough for this project? Thanks.
