Jeanne Shrader
Owner, Yarn Goddess, Fixer of Most Horrid BooBoos

Jeanne is a true yarn junkie. She learned to knit as a kid and picked it up again about 25 years ago. After turning in her middle school classroom as a venue for teaching, Jeanne blissfully teaches knitting and other life skills from the comfort of the sofas.

Knitting Addiction is in it's 16th year of business on the Outer Banks.  We are proud to be a part of your vacation when you are visiting, and we love all our folks who call Knitting Addiction their LYS.

Fabulous furry companion.  Carolina is a sweet, if a bit cautious, brown dog.  She is at the shop all the time and is Jeanne's constant companion.  She can be bribed to show off her tricks, and will often accept some loving.  She was abused and even though she has been with Jeanne for more than 2 years she still has moments when she is skittish.  If you approach her slowly and give her a chance to warm up, you too will fall in love with this silly brown dog.
