BeeBoos aka Boobies


Skacel has just released a limited edition Knit for the Cure
"Booby Sock"

I purchased my kits from my friend Jen's store Purls of Wisdom. You can either call her, visit her shop, or call your local shop and ask if they carry them.

I took the wording directly from the Skacel website:

"The Booby Sock will only be offered in kits, with a limited supply of kits available. All net proceeds from the sale of these sock kits will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research Center. The kits are comprised of limited edition “Pink Ribbon Trekking XXL” yarn (dyed solely for this kit and only available in the kits), a pattern, and decorative beads."

"The design was created by the one and only ‘Chappy’, and represents the following: the top section represents foot steps “walking for a cure”. The second band has pink ribbons on it. The third band is the “healthy boob band” and represents healthy breasts. The fourth band is called the “mammy boob band” and represents squashed breasts getting a mammogram. You then turn your heel, make your gussets…and when you get to the toe…you have a “star toe” since all women are “stars” in their own right. The finishing of the toe produces a nipple shape to complete the Booby Sock."

Love it Love it Love it!!
