Pay It Forward

It's kind of tough to keep you entertained when the last three projects of the month include the arrrgyle socks (which you've seen more than enough times in progress) and two projects that are intended as gifts to people who read this blog.

The socks, by the way, are just fine. The second one's cuff is seamed and only a few more rows remain before I start the heel. One of the gifts was just completed today (and just in time), and the other gift has a long way to go before I mail it on Saturday.

Say it with me now: "I think I can... I think I can... I think I can..."

Ahhh... anyway, to distract you from all of that, I'm going to tell you about a cool little knitbloggy thing that's going around. I read about it a while ago (can't remember where), and was reminded of it last week on Nicole's blog. (Happy birthday, Nicole!!)

It's a concept based on the movie
Pay It Forward. I promise to send a handmade gift to three random people who leave a comment on this post requesting to join the Pay It Forward exchange. I don't know what the handmade gifts will be, nor when you will receive them, but I do promise it will be sometime in the next 365 days. All you have to do is make the same promise to three random people on your own blog.

I thought it sounded like fun. Any takers?

Does it count if you get people that you're already making stuff for to ask to be in on it? Or is that cheating? :)

Just think - If I could convince my sister that her wedding present was also her "Pay It Forward" present... I'd still be two gifts short and a long way from finishing the first one... :(

Can't wait to see what you've been working on - and the argyles!

PIF does sound like a good idea, but I'm afraid to do it for some reason. This is the 3rd time I've seen it, and it tempts me more and more each time.
