Shameless pimping for charity

Knit a Part of a Cancer Research Giant Scarf for a London Icon!


Knit for this lion!

Stitch and Bitch London (a friendly London knitting group who want save the world one knitter at a time) are attempting to knit a gigantic scarf or scarves for the rather chilly-looking Trafalgar Square lions. The scarves will be raffled off for Cancer Research after being presented to the lions mid-March, and the lucky winners will get a 43.5 foot scarf to wrap around their armchair/tree/house/partner (or we can turn the pieces into a blanket for them).


 


The scarves will be presented to the lion in March so you have plenty of time to knit your bit.


 


 Follow the Lion Scarf Story and put yourself on one of our maps on our website at www.stitchandbitchlondon.co.uk


 


We would like as many people as possible to knit a piece. You can knit the smallest, teeny tiny part or a huge chunk, in whichever yarn you fancy using.


 


Knit in support of someone you know fighting cancer, in memory of someone, or just for the joy of knitting for a giant lion!


 


 If you wish to begin knitting your part of the giant scarf at home here are the dimensions:


The scarf will be an enormous: 10 inches (25.5cm) by 43.5 feet (13.25 metres)


Yarn:  Whatever you want to use.


Stitch: Any design you like. Go wild!


 


There are four lions in Trafalgar Square so don't be afraid to knit a big chunk. They can all have one if we get enough!  :)

Knit your bit! Those lions aren’t going to sit there waiting for their scarves for ever you know. Well, okay, maybe they are. But that isn't the point!

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
