Eileen knits on the Mendocino headlands

Corrine installs the "Man Tree"


We have decorated the trees and pillars and decks in Mendocino with brightly colored felt and "sweaters." Street Color of Berkeley initiated the color bombing and it is pretty cool. It will remain up until August 13. If you will be in town Friday June 13th, join us between 5 & 7pm to meet the artists and knitters who helped "color the town". Refreshments will be served on our newly "decorated" deck.

Please check out our latest newsletter and facebook to find out about classes and events. Celebrate summer by knitting on the beaches, on the headlands and in the gardens. Happy knitting, Annelle

"Mendocino Yarn Shop The beautiful yarnbombed trees in the in the Mendocino Crayon Box were created by the knitters and crocheters who flock to Annelle Karlstad's amazing yarn store, the Mendocino Yarn Shop. Knitting and crocheting are used all over the world to yarnbomb trees, street fixtures and buidings, and the knitted trees in Mendocino link to this movement." -- Mendocino Art Center
