Lost Bear's Boobtastic cuddlefest with Yarnbombing Boobs and Knit A Tits

toy photography, yarnbombing, breast cancer
I would like to say I originated the term Knit a Tit but after checking the almighty oracle, google, well there is a GREAT group  called Knitted Knockers already knitting them, NOT for yarnbombing though.
Check my link and you will see why I need a boobie tree.

Thanks to Gale Zucker for the word boobtastic ♥  So what is a jafagal to do eh!  
WHY YARN/Craft bomb a tree of course, RIGHT next to my mailbox.

Jafagirls and Hairy Armpits at Wright State University

No not ours LOL! well sort of ours. You see back in 2011 when Nancy and I were putting together our Hairy Art Palace exhibit we made a bunch or portable hairy armpits to go with our protest mannequin "Hairy Mary"
Their art bristles with intent
The funny thing is that last year it was reported in the New York Times that women were dying their armpit hair, so I guess we were way ahead of the curve with our colourful knitted versions lol.
We took a few of them to our talk at Wright State University and Cindy and Linda decided to model them. 
I was very nervous before the talk and felt I needed CHOCOLATE, but it ended up being so much fun. Big thanks to Cindy and Linda for inviting us to present and to those that attended. It was such a pleasure meeting you all and the quilt exhibit was fantastic.
