Well, this is a bit out of my territory but a fun thing ( I hope) for everyone who loves yarn. Whether you knit or crochet, spin or weave, this song is for you!
But first…a little back story…💖
I have the privilege of teaching ongoing small groups of women who knit and crochet. Several of the ladies also spin and weave and felt and batik…its a very talented group of gals from all walks of life, all ages and levels of expertise from beginners to life-long knitters. The groups (which I like to call knitting communities) meet in a fabulous yarn shop every week. I think of myself as a cross between a cheerleader and a fix-it gal. We inspire each other, do knit-a-longs together, have yarn parties and all sorts of fun and engaging things.
A couple of years ago, I wrote a little song to the tune of a well known camp song called Pass It On. These ladies indulged my silliness and we learned it together and sang it at one of our evening parties. Here we are singing the YARN SONG, complete with harmony and all!
My original idea was to also make a cool video of us singing the song, share it online and maybe even sing it at that year’s Southeastern Fiber Festival in Asheville, North Carolina. But I never quite got it all together. We have sung it once or twice more at other parties just to keep the song alive.
But it was intended for everyone…for all yarn lovers! So here it is…
a PDF of the YARN LOVE SONG for you to print off the words to the song and share with a friend.
And if you can stand to listen to me singing it here, then perhaps between this and the one of all of us singing, you can learn the tune as well! I hope you have fun with this and of course…
PASS IT ON!!!🧶💚😍

I’m hooked. I can’t wait to hear all the girls sing. And I’ll gladly join in!
Haha! I love it…I’m hooked…as in crochet! I’m so glad you’ll be able to join in with us the next time we all sing it together!
Tears of joy to all of you!
It’s fun isn’t it dad?
Aw, very sweet! And Extra Yarn is one of our favorite books around here, too. 🙂 Have you ever read the Vera Brogsol book (also about knitting) called “Leave Me Alone!”? I brought it in and read it to Julian’s class one day earlier this year, the kids loved it.
Hi Gretchyn! No I haven’t read that book! Must look for it! Thank you for the recommendation!
