How Yarn & Recovery, Go Hand In Hand

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who took the time to read my last post. It was very nice to see the comments, and make new friends.
So, as you know (if you read my last post), my blog is a blog dedicated to yarn, with a bit of my recovery, thrown in. I have given myself a two year project (which will last for the duration of my recovery), centered around three methods of working with yarn. I will be learning to crochet (already have), loom knit, and knit. I have decided to write a blog, about the whole thing.
And, in my blog, you will also read a bit about my recovery. I spent 8 years, in a wheelchair. I was misdiagnosed with cerebral palsy. Now, I have had a surgery that will allow me the opportunity to walk.
Recovery is not so easy. I find myself falling down, quite a bit. Every time I do, it is beyond embarrassing. But, the my obsession with yarn, has taught me a valuable lesson, that I take with me into my recovery.
Patience is a virtue. You have to go at all things, slow and steady. And when you fall down (or make a mistake) don't give up. Just get back up, and keep on going.
