About Me

Hello my fellow crocheters or soon-to-be crocheters!

I’m so happy that you found my site. I started The Working Yarn as a creative outlet for myself and help others with the craft.

I’ve always been an arts and crafts type of person since I was a kid. So, when I picked up knitting needles, it really wasn’t a surprise to anyone who knew me back then. I wanted to create something, give it away as gifts, and relieve stress. The last one was a HUGE reason on why I started since I’ve been a long-time sufferer of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). If you’re like me, reducing your stress levels plays a BIG TIME part in managing your IBS symptoms.

In 2016, I started getting curious about crocheting and how I wanted to give myself a challenge to learn a new craft and I haven’t stopped since then. I will probably pick up my knitting needles again in the future but I truly enjoy crocheting that I don’t want to put down the hooks just yet. At any given moment, I have a few WIPs (works in progress). Does that happen to you?

Fast forward to 2018, I wanted to take it a step further and start blogging about crocheting. The Working Yarn is my collective thoughts on the craft, help others on how to crochet from basic stitches and beyond, and start creating my own patterns. I want to do all of that in a way where I’m having fun and you are too!

So now what? If you are not sure where to go next, you can start with my latest posts below or just start clicking everywhere!

If you would like a copy of my free crochet planner, you can sign up for my newsletter below and it will be emailed to you. The newsletter will keep you updated when I post patterns, video tutorials, tips and tricks, and more!

Thank you so much for stopping over and checking my site out. Be sure to say “Hello!” on social media to stay connected! Speak to you in a bit!

xoxo,

Sahira
