Knit-In for the Cure

Missy Karol (left) Susan Menk, Sharon Herwig, Marty Peisch and Dawn Hopkins work their needles Friday during the 10th Annual Knit-In for the Cure at Utrinkets in downtown Brainerd. For 24 hours, knitters will produce chemo caps, prayer shawls and lap blankets to be donated to local cancer patients. Last year, the marathon yielded 91 hats, 51 prayer shawls and 24 lap blankets. Organizer Kristy Yutrzenka is confident the energetic knitters will surpass last year’s total. Steve Kohls/ Brainerd Dispatch Video and Gallery
