Wool ‘N Wares

Last week I went to Wool ‘N Wares in West Linn to visit with owners Karen Schellinkhout and Vickee Cosentino. I needed to deliver a pattern order, and since I’d never been there, I thought it would more fun to deliver them in person. The shop is cute, brightly lit and well-stocked.

I discovered that Vickee and Karen have a great love for entrelac, as I do. Here they are with the Lady Eleanor wrap. I also saw an entrelac cowl, and further conversation revealed that it was Athena. Someone had given Karen the Athena pattern, and that’s how she learned entrelac! I’m so tickled to be an entrelac evangelist. I love cool techniques.

Speaking of cool techniques, I’ll be teaching The Thrill of the Thrum at Wool ‘N Wares on March 31. If this is your LYS, come on over and you too can be enthralled. You’ll want to register early so you can get your homework done. We want to spend less time casting on, and more time thrumming!

And for those of you who read to the bottom: The winner of the Interweave Knits winter issue and the sunny orange Malabrigo worsted yarn is Debbie, the 22nd commenter. Congratulations! I’ll be contacting you for your address. Thanks for playing along, everyone!

  2. Love that sample. I will stop by the shop next time I’m in the area. Thanks for the tip. You’re sure getting around and famous :D

    I love yarn shops! The gal used to own Farmhouse Knit Shop in Beaverton moved to Sunriver last fall and now has a upscale yarn shop here. Our shops are growing in numbers (and boy can I tell you how great that is…of course nothing in comparison to those in Portland!)
