Tit Bits
Has anyone tried these knitted "tit bits" before? the pattern in at knitty.com -- http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTbits.html -- As a beginner, I'm not sure about tackling them. I would love to be able to make at least one for a co-worker. Are they as easy as they look? Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks, Trish

Those are cool, but I wish they'd call them something else. :rollseyes: It just really rubs me the wrong way.

Never made them before...the pattern doesn't look too difficult.

I think they could have came up with a better name for that pattern. 'Tit Bits' makes me think of Hilde's birthday present from KellyK!

:thinking: I guess she just named the things for the web site. OK, what's a better name?? any suggestions? I couldn't remember the name at work when I was telling the lady about them, I was calling them "knitty titties"! I've decided to tackle one anyway. So what shall we call them now?

That's what I thought when I saw the name of this thread

From the article~

Quote:
"You know," I replied, "It was my right breast that was removed."
...I suspect after a masectomy and the courage it takes to not only write with honesty the piece I just read, but to live it, this incredible person choose an extremely appropriate name for her knit pattern. Perhaps naming it as she did is really part of her 'therapy'. Kudo's to both her and Knitty.com

God Bless her, for sharing such an intimate part of her self, so that others can get beyond the stigma of tits.

I agree with your comment except for the "extremely appropriate name" part. I've never been accused of being a prude so that's not it. To me it just sounds vulgar or demeaning. Could just be me and that's okay.
