    An odd bloke. I mean, he had that weird sexless marriage...but he apparently spent a lot of "quality" time with the young woman that lived with them (what was her name? Rose Ball?).

    He may or may not have been a boob worshipper, but he was certainly a boob.

    I have no clue about the Mason stuff...other than he seemed to like their artwork.

    Yeah, I saw that after I commented here. I feel like a dope and its all your fault gumboob.

    I think he was none of that. If Russel was a boob worshipper this would make the Watchtower a boob community and I guess I would have never disassociated myself from such a thing. ;-)

  • RichieRich

    yeah, but did russell demostrate greed in doing such?

  • Scully

    "boob worshipper"?

    Does that mean that he was a "boob" that worshipped? or someone who worshipped "boobs"? or "breasts"?

    I'm sooooo confused!

    knit prosthetic breast in Cotton Chenille
    - free knitting pattern


    Designed and knit by Beryl Tsang

    For fashionable fibre floozies who have lost (a) breast(s) to cancer.


    Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille - 1-50 gr skein or 2 skeins if 2-colors are desired.
    (Sample shown knit in 8211 and 1109)

    1 set Size 6 (4mm) Crystal Palace Double Point Needles;
    1 set Size 5 (3.75mm) Crystal Palace Double Point Needles;
    Stitch marker; Decorative Button; Size 6 Tapestry Needle.

    OPTIONAL: A small fishing weight that you can get at any Bait and Tackle Shop.

    1. Using Size 6 (4mm) double pointed needles yarn, cast on 3 stitches.

    2. Knit two rows (be sure to push the stitches to the end of the needle before beginning to knit a new row) - as though you're knitting an I-cord on double pointed needles.

    Variation: If you don’t want to use a “bead or button nipple” knit a 1.5 to 2 inch I-cord, that can be knotted when the boob is finished. It will look like a nipple through your bra.

    3. Increase to 6 stitches on the next row.

    4. Divide the 6 stitches over 3 needles (nipple made).

    5. Continue knitting in rounds, increasing one stitch before the last stitch on every needle.

    6. Knit to about 18-22 stitches on each needle (54-66 stitches total) for an A cup, 24-28 stitches (72-84)for a B cup, 30-34 (90-102)stitches for a C cup and 36--40 (108-120) stitches for a D cup.

    7. Purl two rows even. You will now have what seems like a GIGANTIC triangular "thingy" that in no way resembles a BOOB but don’t despair, it will fit!

    Repeat steps 1-7 for the other side of "boob" except use Size 5 (3.75mm) needles.

    Sew the two pieces together with a running stitch with right sides facing out before stuffing. Use as much or as little wool or cotton fleece as you like, women with naturally soft breasts for example, usually like less filling, while women with naturally dense breasts like me will stuff it within an inch of it's life.

    If you want a breast that is “weighted down” in your bra, you can hide a small fishing weight in the fleece. *Tack down (to join) the two pieces at the nipple once it's been stuffed. The back of the boob should not be "filled-in" but "concave." The boob itself should be soft and pliable.

    Block by dipping your boob in warm water and soap flakes, rinse and gently squeezing and shape.

    When dry, you can attach a small decorative bead or button for the "nipple,"

    (I love vintage buttons on mine) or knot the I-cord.

    Thank you Beryl for sharing your pattern with everyone!
