I have done Rosetta Stone. That helped but it does not teach you to speak conversational Italian. I have books and cds. I have been using a new site on the internet called Byki (just found it last week). I can read some Italian.

SO I found the magazine and the yarn. I haven't packed all my yarn yet, just in case.
And I got started.
This is what I have so far. I finished one circle and have started on another. You sew the 2 circles together, leaving a space to stuff the netting inside for when the bag is not in use.
I am using a yarn made from hemp, so it should be durable. I can stuff this into my luggage and have a bag to use when shopping whilst waiting for our shipment to arrive (once we have moved).
For a better look at this pattern check out this link ...http://www.knitsimplemag.com/node/163#7 it is about halfway down the page.
Tomorrow I will post another pic of my progress!

Then I read the rest of Dan Brown's work, including "Angels and Demons" which was written before "The Da Vinci Code". It was good. Full of mystery and intrigue. I like that in a book.
But it was not the book that I liked best. "Deception Point" was my favorite. Probably won't see it in the movies!
Now everybody is getting so upset once again about a piece of FICTION>>> I read that the script is different than the book. Not surprising!
It seems like people are always getting worked up over little things that don't really matter in everyday life. Person#1 says something in public that Person #2 doesn't like. It gets splashed all over the news and becomes a big thing. Person #1 has to apologize and that gets talked about for eons until Person #3 comes along and does something like not wear underwear and then the cycle begins again.
