Auburn Needleworks is ready to kick off its second annual beanie drive. The knitted hats will be donated to local veterans and cancer patients.

Residents can stop by the shop from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Nov. 10 through Jan. 19 at 13344 Lincoln Way to knit or crochet a beanie.

Never made one before? Local knitters will be on hand to help novices to get started, beginning with choosing yarn. Finished hats can be dropped off at the store.

Auburn Needleworks will then donate the hand-crafted beanies to local hospitals and veterans’ groups.
