Payin' It Forward

I swiped this from the Knitting Linguist's blog. Here's how it goes:

“It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based on the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I will now Pay It Forward to you THREE, I wonder who you will be?! Please, be a PIF! You will enjoy it just as much as we do!”

And, remember…you have 6 months to get your gifts done! Come on, you know you would love to be one of my angels. Then, one day, but you don’t know when….you will get a gift that I have made especially for YOU!

Please remember, you don’t have to knit or crochet to participate, anyone who can make a nice handmade gift is welcome to join.

Y'all know you're getting warshcloths, right?

Speaking of which, I shall pick names for prizes for the warshcloths and post more pictures as soon as I get home tonight. Apparently they decided to hold December 1 at the beginning of the month instead of in the middle, which is what I had clearly been counting on.


Hey, I'm in if you'll have me! I've already posted it on my blog even if I'm not chosen.
Do I have to have a blog to win? I promise to PIF!
This is perfect for where my brain was tonight already. I'm posting to my blog now.
How about I pay it forward to you already? I fell down in the sugar and cream aisle awhile back and that cotton needs a home. Email me with your address for the mailing and whatnot...
oh I can't tell if there are 3 already or not. If not, pick me! :)
Where did you hear that they put December 1 at the beginning of the month? I never got the memo. Uh oh, I'm in trouble now! And the part that is really going to screw me up is that I have to be completely ready for Christmas on the 14th because my husband and I are going to Florida for 4 days to be with my mother for her 75th birthday on the 19th (and my husband doesn't do airplanes, so we are driving 1100 miles each way)! January sounds really good right now, as I think that may be the next time that I get any sleep!
What?! It's December already?! Crap. Doesn't Christmas come in December? Double crap. Better start knitting.
i've always thought there should be a month between nov and dec.

can we move feb? other than val day, it's about the most useless month ever. but if we put it between nov and dec, we'd have 28 (sometimes 29) more knitting days until christmas, hanukkah, diwali, kwanzaa, solstice and festivus (and my apologies to any other long-nights/short-days holidays i may have missed).

and now, back to knitting a black watch cap for my son, to go with last year's "cratchitt" scarf . . . all 7-plus feet of it.
Best of luck with knitting three dishcloths in six months. Sounds like a crazy schedule to me.

Great scoop on Craiglist!
I'm always behind on my reading at the wrong time! jeeze
