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.

Self Care is not just caring for yourself!

Self Care is not just caring for yourself!

So often we are so busy in responding to and looking after those around us that we forget to take time for us and to make sure we are looking after our own wellbeing.

Its often hard to put ourselves first, especially when there are people around us that we feel need us.  One of the biggest issues with this is what is often called 'compassion fatigue' or what I call an 'empty cup'.

Having an empty cup means you have been so busy giving something of yourself to everyone around you that you have nothing left for yourself!

So how do you refill your cup?

This pattern was tested by the fabulous Simone & Kerri - thank you x

We are so lucky that our fabulous customers and Yarn Me Calm (YMC) Community members are phenomenally talented!

The wonderful Ali Allen (@ali_in_tas on Instagram) was showing some of her amazing creations on YMC Community and on Instagram and I had asked her if she  had written any pattern up for them.  She humbly said no, she hadn't written any of her patterns and that she generally created for family, friends and her beautiful daughter!

So of course I said she absolutely should write her patterns down because she is amazing!  Lucky for all of us, Ali was happy to share one of her patterns and here it is!

I hope you all love this pattern as much as I do and it would be wonderful if you jumped on over to Ali's Instagram page to show her your appreciation!
