I managed to finish the embroidery on one Firebird sock.
It's tempting to leave the other one plain.
Can you see the bird in the plain one? See, it's that basketweave area outlined in slip stitches? OK, maybe not. But that one sock represents two days of embroidery, with not much time off for good behavior.
I thought about embellishing with additional beads, but I bet I will not have the patience.
Don't tell anyone on Ravelry. Paul thought they looked like sea monsters.
I have been to two Overeaters Anonymous meetings. I got some books from Amazon.com and have read and accepted steps one and two. I have met some nice people; and I have met some strange ones. It appears that people can become addicted to 12-Step programs.
Now I am trying to tell myself I can do it by myself and don't need the program.
Uh hunh. Right.
