Friends and Fiber’s knitting club members Betty Scheider, Virginia Baumann, Jo Wilhelm and Mary Molton show off the Knitted Knockers the women have made for charity.

 

October may be Breast Cancer Awareness month, but for a group of Oldham County ladies who like to crochet and knit, they are giving back to those affected every day of the year.

Vicki Kinser, owner of La Grange’s Friends and Fiber Shop, recently introduced the knitting and crocheting groups to Knitted Knockers, a program that has volunteers making prosthetic breasts for free to mastectomy patients.

“As soon as I heard about this program, I thought this was a really good fit for the ladies at the shop,” Kinser said.
