The Yarn Project of Michael Leach

The Scary Truth

I started my blog, June 9, of last year. It has been a complete Godsend. Yarn has been a complete Godsend. It is INSANE to think that a hobby (such as working with yarn) could be so wonderful, on so many levels. But, it can. It is a complete metaphor, for my recovery, and for the whole 'being misdiagnosed with cerebral palsy' thing.
I mean, really...
I approach new projects, feeling this overwhelming sense of fear. I think to myself: 'I will NEVER be able to loom knit that fish pillow', or 'I will never learn to knit.' But, I do. Somehow, I do.
So, when I think that I will never be able to learn to walk, I just remember that I have learned to work with yarn. If I can do this...Then darn it. I CAN LEARN TO WALK.
