    Barb Demorest of Knitted Knockers

    in Hobbies

    I’m Barb Demorest founder of Knitted Knockers Support Foundation, www.knittedknockers.org.   My story began when I had a mastectomy and was at a loss as to what to wear. My good friend and super knitter, Phyllis, made me a knitted knocker!  It literally changed my life. Knittedknockers.org is a website where women can request their free knockers made with unconditional love by caring volunteer knitters.
