Happy New Year 2015

The past year was very busy at the Mendocino Yarn Shop. We welcomed new staff ~ Jessica Roberts. Jessica is a prolific knitter and full of energy. In June we joined "Street Color" to wrap trees, pillars, decks and the fire bell in colorful knitted "sweaters". The Village looked great.

Mendocino Yarn Shop added yarns ~ Sweet Georgia, Swan's Island, and Island Yarns. Annelle's favorite new yarn is The Fibre Company's "Tundra",a soft chunky, knittable merino blend. It was hard to pick one favorite. What was your "yarn of the year"?

We are wrapping up 2014 and looking forward to 2015 with a big sale. We know you need yarn to get through our already rainy winter, so come in and stock up this week. Or, call or email us and get in on the sale, even if you aren't in Mendocino. We wish you a happy, healthy and knitty New Year.

~ Annelle, Rosanna, Pamela Karen & Jessica

"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
