New Completed Project

This is one of my finished loomed projects

I followed this pattern from rostitchery i'm a knifty knitter BumbleBee hat pattern except I did my hat somewhat differently:
you need: 2 rolls of camoflauge yarn, use two strands of yarn held together for the camoflauge color, green knifty knitter loom, loom tool, tapestry needle

BRIM: Crochet chain one row then flat/u stitch three rows and then purl three rows, do not cut yarn.

FIRST EAR FLAP: count 6 pegs to the left of the holding peg, then using the camoflauge yarn *make a 3-peg I-cord (see below for instructions). then e-wrap and knit one row (3 stitches). increase one stitch at the beginning and end of the next 3 rows (see below for instructions), giving you 9 stitches. e-wrap and knit 5 rows even, then cut yarn leaving a 4" tail.*

SECOND EAR FLAP: count 9 pegs to the right of the holding peg, then repeat above between *'s.
BODY OF HAT: starting back at the beginning peg and using the camoflauge yarn, e-wrap one row, then knit. when you get to the ear flaps, knit 1 over 2 (one loop over two loops). e-wrap another row, knit, this time when you get to the ear flaps, knit 2 over 1 (ear flap loops will now be knit into the hat).
e-wrap using the 1 over 2 and 2 over 1 when getting to ear flaps.and knit until hat is desired length.mine was seven inches.just like when loomknitting a regular hat .
3 peg I-cord: wrap three pegs, then take the yarn back to the first peg SKIPPING THE SECOND PEG, rather than knitting back over it to get to the first peg. e-wrap the three pegs again. knit. repeat until cord is as long as needed.

increasing: wrap the empty peg next to the beginning or end of the row TWICE, and knit this additional stitch with the rest of the row.
Note:I should have knitted the I-cords on the small blue loom then attach to green loom,hat pattern.

Not so busy Thanksgiving break

I have been out since Monday for Thanksgiving break. Will go back to classes starting this comming Monday.Trenholm has two weeks left of Fall semester.(December 13).I am not looking forward to Spring semester because I have to take Intro Algebra.I don't want to take Intro Algebra but I have no other choice. Beside school,I finished a loomed project.It is called the Magic Scarf I like the scarf because it can be worn several ways besides wearing it as a plain scarf. I worked on the project for three weeks. I have in mind making another one. It feels so good worn around my neck and head.

Besides the loomed scarf, I found an interesting article about an 115 year old woman in Indianna.Unfortunately she passed away.It is amazing somebody can survive that long and have a good mind
Indiana woman dies at 115 as world's oldest person

Play Video Video: World's oldest person dies in Indiana AP
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. – Edna Parker, who became the world's oldest person more than a year ago, has died at age 115. UCLA gerontologist Dr. Stephen Coles said Parker's great-nephew notified him that Parker died Wednesday at a nursing home in Shelbyville. She was 115 years, 220 days old, said Robert Young, a senior consultant for gerontology for Guinness World Records. Parker was born April 20, 1893, in central Indiana's Morgan County and had been recognized by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest person since the 2007 death in Japan of Yone Minagawa, who was four months her senior. Coles maintains a list of the world's oldest people and said Parker was the 14th oldest validated supercentenarian in history. Maria de Jesus of Portugal, who was born Sept. 10, 1893, is now the world's oldest living person, according to the Gerontology Research Group. Parker had been a widow since her husband, Earl Parker, died in 1939 of a heart attack. She lived alone in their farmhouse until age 100, when she moved into a son's home and later to the Shelbyville nursing home. Although she never drank alcohol or tried tobacco and led an active life, Parker didn't offer tips for living a long life. Her only advice to those who gathered to celebrate when she became the oldest person was "more education." Parker outlived her two sons, Clifford and Earl Jr. She also had five grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and 13 great-great-grandchildren. Don Parker, 60, said his grandmother had a small frame and a mild temperament. She walked a lot and kept busy even after moving into the nursing home, he said. "She kept active," he said Thursday. "We used to go up there, and she would be pushing other patients in their wheelchairs." Gov. Mitch Daniels celebrated with Parker on her 114th birthday. "It was a delight to know Edna, who must have been a remarkable lady at any age," Daniels said. Parker taught in a two-room school in Shelby County for several years after graduating from Franklin College in 1911. She wed her childhood sweetheart and neighbor in 1913. But as was the tradition of that era, her teaching career ended with her marriage. Parker traded the schoolhouse for life as a farmer's wife, preparing meals for as many as a dozen men who worked on her husband's farm. Parker noted with pride last year that she and her husband were one of the first owners of an automobile in their rural area. Coincidentally, Parker lived in the same nursing home as 7-foot-7 Sandy Allen, whom Guinness recognized as the world's tallest woman until her death in August.

Back to Blogging

I am back to my blogging.Can't blog from Trina's KnitaLand at my school anymore because of a filter what the school put in on the computers to keep the porn and viruses out.I can understand a filter to keep the students from looking at the bad stuff,but I can't even check my email unless it's Yahoo.I have three email with Yahoo,one with Care2 and the other one with GMX.I really have to rely on checking my email every day because that's where I get my Merchandising assignments.If I can't check my email daily then I can't choose the work I need to do and get PAID!.Trenholm needs to get a new filter where it won't be a hindrance on those students who don't even look at porn.Anyway besides that,I was able to do some loom knitting from the long blue loom.

I am Stocknite stitching a scarf and a hat.

Another Microcomputer Class Session

Right now I am in my Microcomputer Operating Systems . We have to do 3 to 4 pages about the Operation System. He has a very interesting Indian Accent. Can I understand him? Yes I can understand him very clear. I am glad that I got the ch1 and ch2 tests out of the way. I can now rest a little bit. I still have to study hard in Networking , the conversion of bytes and decimals. We have a quiz Monday. I am praying that the Lord will continue to give me understanding in Networking and I won't fail Cisco. I got to go and really listen to Mr. Raza's lecture.

112 Year Old man,WOW

RAF fly past for Clapham-born Henry Allingham's 112th birthday Friday, 06 June 2008
Europe's oldest man, Henry Allingham, has reached another milestone in his remarkable life as he celebrated his 112th birthday on 6th June with an RAF flypast. Mr Allingham witnessed the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire before the RAF's parachute display team drops in.Dignitaries at a VIP lunch included Air Vice Marshal Peter Dye and Vice Admiral Sir Adrian Johns (Second Sea Lord and commander-in-chief Naval Home Command).
Eight of Mr Allingham's grandchildren and great grandchildren and their partners have flown from their homes in the United States for the occasion.Later, 40 pupils from Cranwell Primary School presented him with a birthday cake on what is the 90th anniversary year of the RAF.His birthday marks another landmark for a man who is the last founder member of the RAF and whose life has spanned three centuries and six monarchs. Before setting off to Lincolnshire from St Dunstan's care home for blind ex-service personnel in Ovingdean, near Brighton, East Sussex, he spoke about reaching such a grand age. Mr Allingham said: "I feel on the crest of a wave. What man wouldn't with all the good souls I have looking after me here. "I'm a lucky guy. I am looking forward to a wonderful day and to seeing the family. I just hope I don't let the side down. People ask me how I've done it, and I just say that I look forward to another tomorrow." His close friend and chaperone Dennis Goodwin, also founder of the First World War Veterans' Association, feted Mr Allingham's strength and character. Mr Goodwin said: "He is simply an incredible man. Each year we think that maybe this will be his last but he just seems to carry on regardless. "He is an example to us all. He keeps up with all the events and functions that he is invited to. "Last year we counted that he had clocked up 47 events which is quite something for a man his age. He knows what's going on around him and enjoys the company of people." Mr Allingham is just one of three known UK survivors from the First World War. The other two are ex-Royal Navy stoker Bill Stone, 107, who was born in Devon but now lives in Oxfordshire, and 109-year-old Harry Patch, who lives in Wells, Somerset, the last surviving Tommy to have served on the Western Front. Before he left St Dunstan's, Mr Allingham posed for pictures holding a collection of birthday cards and stole a number of kisses from staff wishing him a happy birthday. Patrick McBride, senior staff nurse at St Dunstan's, said: "He is amazing. He has got such a lovely personality and was singing away happily. "He loves it here and is so grateful for the care he receives. With his age, he does suffer from pain but he seems to take it all in his stride and gets on with life. "He calls me boy, everyone to Henry is either boy or girl. He is a pleasure to look after. Whereas a lot of people when they get elderly get quite low in mood, Henry is the opposite." The Government announced two years ago that the death of the last known First World War veteran would be marked by a national memorial service at Westminster Abbey. The decision was warmly welcomed by veterans and by MPs who have campaigned for a service to mark the final passing of the generation which fought in the 1914-18 conflict. It was said the service would reflect the events of November 11, 1920, when the unknown warrior was laid to rest and the Cenotaph unveiled in Whitehall. Mr Allingham, who has five grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, joined the Royal Naval Air Service in September 1915 before transferring to the RAF in April 1918. As well as being the last founder member of the RAF, he is also the sole survivor of the Battle of Jutland. On what lessons he learnt from the First World War, Mr Allingham has said: "Hear all, see all and say nowt." He has been awarded a string of accolades including the British War Medal, Victory Medal and the Legion d'honneur, France's highest military honour. In April 2006 he was given the freedom of Eastbourne, the East Sussex seaside town where he retired in the 60s. He lived a relatively independent life alone in the resort but with his eyesight fast deteriorating, he moved to St Dunstan's where he can receive round-the-clock care.
