Well, Hi There!!!

Hello, everyone. My name is Michael, and I am here, in the hopes of finding new blog friends.
I started a blog, on June 9, 2010, which is titled The Yarn Project. I had just had this HUGE, life changing surgery, which would allow me the opportunity to walk. (I had spent YEARS in a wheelchair. I was misdiagnosed, with Cerebral Palsy.) While I was in the hospital, I had a crocheted blanket, donated to me. It was in that moment, that I knew I wanted to learn to work with yarn.
I was given a time span of (at least) 2.5 years, to recover. That is a VERY long time, to do nothing. So, I decided to learn, not just one, but THREE methods of working with yarn. In two years, while recovering, I would learn to crochet, loom knit, and knit. And, I decided to write a blog, about it.
My blog, is a blog, that primarily focuses on yarn. There is, however, a good deal of my recovery, that I talk about. Working with yarn, though I would not have expected it, has become this strange type of metaphor, of my recovery.
And, there you have it...A quick little summary, about my blog.
I hope that you will swing by, and check me out.
Thanks for reading this.
Michael
