My blog is a blog about yarn...but it is also about my recovery.
And today, while I was looming away (creating a washcloth), I started thinking about the 'deeper' levels, of The Yarn Project. You know...Why I started it, and everything.
I started my project, because I was recovering from a surgery. TV had become boring, and I needed something to do. I needed to occupy my time. I needed something, apart from pain, to focus on.
And now, I realize how special my blog (and my Project) are.
I needed The Yarn Project.
It has given me the ability to write about my recovery. It has allowed me the opportunity to use yarn as a metaphor, for everything else. (Because, dang it. If I can learn to crochet, loom knit, and knit, then I can learn to walk!)
Before starting The Yarn Project, I had tried to write another blog. I tried to write a blog, about my recovery. But, I couldn't. The feelings I had, about my surgery, and my recovery...They just would not flow onto the page. That is, until I started this blog, and this Project.
Through my Project, I am learning new talents, which I love (even though they often stress me out.) And, I have finally found a way, to write about my recovery.
I am so thankful, for The Yarn Project.
I just thought I would write that out.
