Knitted breasts created by 91-year-old pensioner

275x250.jpg You might expect your granny to knit you a woolly jumper, but one pensioner has been defying expectations by using her needles to craft amazing knitted BREASTS.

Coral Charles-Dunne, 91, from Birmingham, has knitted dozens of the unusual educational tools as part of a project to inform expectant and new mums about breastfeeding.

She says spends about two hours creating each of the woolly boobs and makes them in a range of sizes, knitting for up to six hours per day.

The knitted breasts are then used by expectant moms to learn techniques for breast feeding… their partners probably use them to create an unusual game of football.
275x250.jpg Coral first picked up her knitting needles when she was eight, and still knits a range of items in her spare time. "My fingers are busy from six o'clock until midnight every evening," she said.

"I've knitted stacks of stuff for charity, like pull overs, scarves and hats for orphans in Romania, though this is definitely the most unusual thing I've done.

She says she was encouraged to knit the wooly boobs by breastfeeding network volunteer who she met at chapel.

"Beverley was looking for someone to knit the breasts, and because I do a lot of knitting I said 'yes, I'll do it'.

"First of all I thought it was a little strange but when she explained that a lot of young women have no idea about things like that I decided to help."
