The Knitting Tree is a cozy yarn shop nestled among the boutiques in the 2600 block of Monroe Street in Madison, Wisconsin.

Proprietor, Jackie Shanahan grew up around the corner on Commonwealth Street and has been coming to The Knitting Tree since she was a little girl, purchasing knitting supplies with her mother.

Our philosophy is that knitting is meditation.  The appeal for us is the whole mind, body, soul connection.  The shop's goal is to make it all come together in a relaxed atmosphere.


"The Tree" specializes in natural fibers and exotic yarns with a complete range of wonderful garments, designs, patterns books and knitting accessories.
  The shop staff also assists knitters with their projects. 

We offer knitting classes for novice and advanced knitters, as well as custom knit designs and finishing.
