A Blanket for Belle, maybe Forever

That’s what I am working on right now. Of course, ya’ll don’t know it as that. You know it as the log cabin scrap blanket. It was in that pile of stuff I have to use up there in front of the bench chest, and once I found out my bff’s dog needed a blankie, well, there ya go. Yes, I have dogs. No they don’t need blankets. They live outside, unlike spoiled Belle, the throw-away boy-cum-girl-dog. Plus, it will allow me to cross off 14 balls of acrylic yarn :) Always an ulterior motive here at Chez Knits.

Speaking of the bench chest…. do you remember it?

Yes, ok. I have decided that in the event that Earth was destroyed and I had to leave with just one treasured possession, it would be that chest. I’d put my Bible in there and yarn and needles. And it would be sock yarn. Because that chest is huge, and there is no way I could use it up full of sock yarn. And no matter where you end up, you always need socks. Even when fighting off the space creatures. I guess that would be my contribution to Operation Immortality, since I am a Tabula Rasa failure. LOL!

Social-spark-315x235Operation Immortality: Leave your mark. Save Humanity. is the website set up to gather ideas about humanity’s greatest achievements, and messages from regular folks. In October, Richard Garriott will travel to the International Space Station and put this archive, along with some DNA, there. Mr Garriott is the man behind the Tabula Rasa game, and the 6th private citizen to go to space.

And man an I behind the times! The last I remember they were just talking about letting private citizens travel to space! Anyway. If you think you have what it takes, then go play the game, and register for a chance to have your DNA sent to space. I’m telling you–that knitting gene MUST be preserved. You know I am right!
