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

In these extremely difficult times we here at Yarn Me Calm (Mr. YMC & I) continue to choose to react with kindness, caring and empathy.  So we are sending you  love and positivity 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.

The Calming Yarn

Snowy Stars

Snowy Stars

I'm not exactly sure how and when the first idea of a snowflake came about but I think it was actually several years ago.  I think initially I was just going to make some snowflakes for Christmas Tree decorations.  As I often do, I started making with a vague concept in mind and the snowflake grew from there.  Once I had made one though, I thought they would be great not just as tree decorations but also as wall hangings and/or bunting.  

I know I keep referring to them as snowflakes but they are called Snowy Stars.  That's because the gorgeous Mr. YMC kept saying they look more like stars than snowflakes!  I think they are snowflakes, he thinks they are Snowy Stars they can be both or either!

Convertible Collector!

Convertible Collector!

I planted dill (and some other herbs) in some pots at our 'Happy Place' in Portarlington and I was super pleased to see that they were thriving after we hadn't been able to tend to them over the Victorian lockdown.  Quite a few of them had gone to seed but there was a bounty of goodies to collect!

I headed down the stairs and out to the back yarn with my trusty scissors to cut some dill for Mr. YMC's cannelloni.  On the way back in I noticed that I was doing a Hansel & Gretel.....I had a fine trail of dill following me into the house and up the stairs.  

This would be fine if I needed to find my way back again but not so great otherwise!  Now, many (or most) people would take a bag or basket or plate or something else to collect their herbs but not me, I decided I needed to make something useful.

Myshelle Bag

Myshelle Bag

About 12 months ago, (time flies during a lockdown!), we were at our happy place with our niece and nephew.  We had gone for a lovely wander on the beach and the kids were busily collecting shells to bring back to the house to decorate some picture frames we had bought to keep them occupied!  We had some crocheted shopping bags to bring the shells back with the plan to wash them in the outside sink and remove most of the sand before taking them inside!  Because some of the shells were quite small we lost a couple on the way home and left a trail of sand (a bit like Hansel & Gretel) all the way home.

So it got me thinking there had to be a better way...
