Why Yarn Me Calm?

Because Yarn is so much more than crochet, knitting and craft.

Yarn is friendship, community, sharing, giving, caring, loving, gifting, soothing, soft and squishy goodness!

The Current Crisis

The world continues to be  isolated, distressed, disempowered and fearful.  This is having a flow on effect  to intensifying anxiety and reactionary behaviour.

How we choose to react is one thing we do have control over!  

We (Mr YMC and I) choose to react with kindness, caring and empathy.  So we are sending you all love and we are hoping you and yours are safe and well.

We are still providing squishy goodies whilst we can get them for you!  This might mean that your favourite yarns are unavailable however we will do our best to find yummy replacements whenever we can!  

We take precautions for our wellbeing and consequently yours in doing this, including the use of gloves, hand washing and sanitiser.

Please be patient with us as we continue to get orders out regularly. 

Aus Post are continuing to experience delays that are impacting on the time it takes to get your goodies to you!  They are working extra hard but with a decrease in domestic flights and border closures it might mean that your goodies will be delayed. 

Take care, stay well and kind.

Textured Washer Trio

Textured Washer Trio

I love textured washers hand made from 100% cotton.  I have made so many of these for gifts but so far haven't kept any for myself! 

A little while ago I made a set of three textured washers out of some scrumptious Lily Sugar N Cream with the intention of keeping them, however showed someone who loved them and then......oops gone!!!  I didn't write down what I did when I made the original three textured washers.  I figured it didn't matter too much that these weren't identical as long as I used a combination of stitches that create fabulous texture.

I adore textured stitches and in particular bobbles and popcorns.  The bobble washer was born from me wanting to create washers that were not only functional but also fun!  All of three of these textured washers are fabulous for gentle exfoliation.

These are brilliant gifts and whilst we are locked down here in Melbourne its perfect timing to make some for gifts or just because you want some for yourself!

Floral Stitch Marker Keeper Pattern

Floral Stitch Marker Keeper Pattern

I made this quick little floral stitch marker keeper some time ago and popped the pattern up in Yarn Me Calm Community on Facebook and on Instagram.

I thought I should share it here too! 

It can be attached to scissors, hold your stitch markers and even has a central section that can be used as a small pincushion!!!

Synergy Throw - By Alison Allen

Synergy Throw - By Alison Allen

The wonderful Ali Allen (@ali_in_tas on Instagram) has done it again!  Ali has created this fabulous hexagonal shaped throw made up of fabulous triangle motifs using some yummy Lion Brand Big Scoop and Scheepjes Colour Crafter yarns. 

I was so excited when she first had this concept, unfortunately it was originally designed for the Scheepjes Stone washed & River washed XL packs and they are no longer being produced so this meant a rethink of both the yarn and the design.

Lucky for all of us, Ali was not only happy to do recreate her original design but she was again happy to share her pattern free on The Calming Yarn and here it is! 

Thanks Ali you are so fabulously generous and we appreciate you x
