When in Rome...

You Belong in Rome

You're a big city girl with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian men - could life get any better?

Yet another weekend come and gone. I'm finally getting my appetite back and feeling more energetic. I'm hopeful that the abscess was the root (no pun intended) of the problem. Of course, now I need to get a crown on that tooth...which is another nice chunk of $$...lovely, huh? The endodontist was trying to talk me into getting crowns on both of my front teeth, so my smile would look nicer. He says it's hard to match color of just one tooth. So...why would it be easier to match 2? They're the 2 in the very front of my mouth, and so what if they match each other - if they don't match the rest of my teeth? They endodontist was an ass. (And that's not the only reason I think so.) I think I'm just going for the one crown, to make it easier on my pocket. And I figure if they don't match the color exactly, I'm not any worse off than I am now, since the dead tooth is already darker than the rest. At least my regular dentist will do it and not the endodontist.

I finished the Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood today. It made me cry. More than I expected. But it was really good. Now, I should probably plan to see the movie, so I can compare notes. (No, I didn't actually take notes...)

I need to figure out what to make for the One Skein finished project to send to my secret pal. Any ideas? The few crochet projects in the book don't really excite me all that much. I am thinking of doing the felted clutch in crochet, but will have to figure out how to modify the pattern... Any thoughts or ideas?

Not sure what you should make for the One Skein project.

What a surprise! I got London as my city. It's always been my fave city next to SF.

No surprise to me, I belong in Roma.

And I also belong in 1955 according to another quiz.

As for the project, your idea sounded good. That last bag you made was cute too. You could always dress anything up a little with a knitted or crochet flower pin that could be reomoved. Like the ones we saw at that store in Pleasanton.

to convert knitting to crochet, it's basically one row of single crochet to one row of knit and one row of purl (k1, p1); or two rows of knit; or two rows of garter stitch. Substitute three rows of knitting (or knit one row, purl one row, then knit one row - k1, p1, k1) for one row of half-double crochet.Knit a row of each (k1, p1, k1, p1) for a total of four rows to replace one row of double crochet. Change one row of treble crochet into six rows of stockinette (or knit one row, purl one row, knit one row, purl one row, knit one row, purl one row - k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1).

Oh my gosh, I did another version quiz on another site and got Rome too!

Your project sounds cool.
