“You can’t organize clutter!”

This is our 5th year of publication and in that 5 years we have raised over $5000 for Breast Cancer.

The calendar contains 14 never-before-published knitting patterns.

You can download one of the patterns for FREE at www.fitterknitter.com to judge for yourself the quality of the calendar.

All proceeds of the sale of these calendars (except of PayPal fees) go to www.ArmyOfWomen.org whose goals are

·         To recruit one million healthy women of every age and ethnicity, including breast cancer survivors and women at high-risk for the disease.

·         To partner with breast cancer researchers and directly participate in the research that will eradicate breast cancer once and for all.

·         To challenge the scientific community to expand its current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on healthy women.

·         We’ve come a long way in finding a cure for breast cancer. Now let's find the cause.
