Pay it Forward
Wherever you go in Blogland you see evidence of the amazing generosity of this community and now I have a chance to give something back to you (well three of you in particular) ; via Piglottie I have signed up for the Pay it Forward exchange:It’s based on the concept made famous in 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 pass it on. 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 (am going to try and knit them - should Christmas gift knitting allow) but it will be sent within 6 months and that’s a promise! What you should do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
I'm a fairly new knitter and just starting to realise how big (and how fantastic) the online knitting community is. I'm just in the process of setting up a blog (and desperately waiting for my Ravelry invite).
All the best
I like to blame the online knitting community whole heartedly for turning my new hobby into a full blown obsession ;o) It's a wonderful place.
I think this is a wonderful project and I hope to participate 'some day'... :^)
It sounds like a really great thing. I hope you enjoy doing it.
