Step 3: Recognizing a higher power that can give strength.
For needlecrafters, diving into the thousands of patterns and yarns and projects and people and groups and advice -- how could anyone go wrong? How many times I have opened my Ravelry link (saved on my menu bar for ease and convenience) to find a new and inventive stitch to use on my socks, only to emerge hours later to find that I have added several new patterns to my library. Then I feel guilty because I should have been knitting instead of being on the computer.
Here's where the higher power comes in -- all is forgiven for time spent in Ravelry. I look at it as my own form of video games.
More about Ravelry's involvement in my 12-step plan tomorrow.
Back to the needles -- that is, if I can close my Ravelry page.
