"The Monroe"

C'mon in and see our NEW yarns and NEW space!  As well as our NEW products - you have to see!



The Knitting Tree, the long established neighborhood yarn shop on Monroe Street has moved 2 doors down, occupying the corner retail space of the recently completed building called “The Monroe”, built by Rouse Management on the corner of Monroe and Knickerbocker Streets.

“We're very excited about moving into this beautiful new space, but staying so close to our original location which has been on Monroe Street for 45 years,” said store owner Jackie Shanahan.

Shanahan, who grew up around the corner on Commonwealth Street, would visit the original shop with her mother when she was a girl. She bought the shop in 2006. “It was fortunate this new space opened so close, to keep the store here in the neighborhood. We wouldn't have thought of relocating, but when we were approached about moving we couldn't say no. It was new and full of possibilities yet virtually in the same location, being right next door,” she said.

Shanahan has a photo stylist/set design background which served her well in developing the space. “We were really excited to design our own space. I wanted to create a boutique shopping experience that was comfortable for our knitting customers but would also offer exciting gift ideas for non-knitters.” 




Our passion for the study, concepts and design of knitted garments, inspired by the hip and eclectic knitters of Madison, Wisconsin has culminated in Patternology™.  Presented exclusively by The Knitting Tree.
