Pay It Forward



These are the instructions:

“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!

Most the people I know in blogland have already signed for it. I saw the group on Ravelry and decided I needed to do it. I signed up thru Girly with A Twist. If you haven't signed up already, please do. I promise to make you something nice :-)

I'm in. I think this would be a great idea. In the age of "what's in it for me" it's would be nice to kniting something for a totally selfless purpose and expect nothing in return.

I think this is a beautiful idea - and how nice to get something in the mail that ISN'T a bill - and when you least expect it!! Add to that the buzz you get from making something for someone...count me in!!!

I found you on Ravelry, I try to live my life paying it forward. I am really into teaching the young ones the old ways and knitting is one of my passions, as well as spinning, weaving, beading, dyeing fiber, polymer clay and putting them all together in multi-media projects. You can find me and my lovely daughter, Laura at:
