My local Joann's, in western MD, still has what I think are the same skeins of yarn it had 6 years ago when I started knitting, and lately it seems like they have less and less yarn. However, I went in a few weeks ago and noticed that their selection of needles and accessories has improved significantly. Maybe that means there's yarn on the way??? I can dream.

LadyJessica, I think it's hopeful! I've heard via Ravelry that Joann's has introduced several new yarns under their house brand, so maybe you'll get some of those, at least. The new ones I saw I really liked.

At my store, they not only got the new house yarns but also the entire store was remodelled--which increased the size of the yarn dept to 3 or 4 times its old size.

Sounds like your store, or at least the yarn dept, is due for a remodel, too....

I've noticed the new yarns at my JoAnn's as well. The cost is higher than Micheal's and the selection not as big. As far as needles go, neither store has a good selection. I've gotten so I buy a lot of needles on line to get the size/lengths I need. Good to see them revamping the stores.

Knitting is saving my sanity
