Easy Crochet Ribbed Hat Pattern Allen Williams I wasn’t expecting to crochet any hats today but this one snuck in to my afternoon. We started Veteran’s Day (Remembrance Day here in Canada) by visiting Michael’s Crafts Store as it was having a two-day sale. I found a 20% off coupon in the local flyer so I couldn’t pass it up. I loaded up on yarn for future projects and then we decided to have dim sum before heading home. Not wanting to take an MSG-induced nap, I decided to put this green and blue variegated yarn to use. I made the hat as suggested in the pattern (size K hook, worsted weight yarn) but I found the hat a bit too tight for a normal adult head. You can really see the crocheted rib style in this photo (and I love the colors in this variegated yarn): It’s only mid-afternoon so I’m thinking there’s time to make one more hat before dinner (assuming I’m not distracted now by blogging). Although a thank-you is not nearly enough for the work you’ve done and continue to do, I hope you know how much it means to me!

Grab ammonia out of thin air for fuel of the future - tech - 06 August 2013 Editorial: "Look to the past for the fuel of the future" AS VITAL chemicals go, it's hard to beat ammonia. Industrial production began in the early 20th century, and it played a key role in the second world war and in two Nobel prizes. It brought about a global revolution in agriculture – today, crops grown using ammonia-based fertilisers feed no less than 48 per cent of the planet. Could ammonia also be the clean fuel of the future? When burned, it produces nothing more than water vapour and nitrogen, which makes up 78 per cent of Earth's atmosphere. Most ammonia is produced by heating natural gas or coal as a source of hydrogen, then forcing it to react with atmospheric nitrogen. Now engineer John Holbrook has developed a technique he hopes will make the process cleaner. Holbrook has co-founded NHThree to commercialise the technology. Other groups have already shown that it is possible to grab ammonia cleanly out of thin air. New Scientist Not just a website! More From New Scientist

Crochet Bunny Nibble nibble, hop hop Posted on Updated on If you are a regular follower you will immediately notice that these bunnies are very closely related to some particularly cute owls made recently. You see a distant aunt on their mother’s side fell in love with a completely unsuitable (if you are an owl) rabbit… the rest, so they say, is history.

Ammonia as fuel of future IN NOVEMBER 1942, Belgium's public bus system ground to a halt, crippled by a wartime shortage of diesel. The standstill caused chaos. Engineers at the country's public transport company got to work and by April 1943 the service was up and running again. The experiment was short-lived, but it proved the point that ammonia – plus a small amount of coal gas to help combustion – could be used as a transport fuel. Seventy years later, ammonia may be ready to ride to the rescue again. These attributes give ammonia an edge over hydrogen, long touted as the fuel of the future in a hypothetical "hydrogen economy". Ammonia isn't a panacea. The road to a low-carbon future won't be straightforward, and it seems certain that we will need a range of energy sources to arrive there in good time.
