Paying it Forward

Wishing the tulips were out already...

This is a fun new group I just found out about from z.knits - I just signed up as one of z's 'pay it forward' recipients - read on to find out what this means:

"It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of 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. Please remember, you don't have to knit or crochet to participate, anyone who can make a nice handmade gift is welcome to join :)"

What a great idea! It's a Ravelry group, so for those of you who have an account, you can read more about it there. I can't wait to see what z will make (no pressure, I know you've got school and wedding planning!) because she is quite the talented knitter. Now for my end of the deal. I'll make a handmade gift for the first 3 people (with blogs please) to respond to this post.

I hope some of you anonymous visitors to Knitticrafty will sign up so I get to know you a little better, so please write me!

Updated 3/19/08: Hmm. It has been more difficult to fill the third slot than one would expect. I did notice that a lot of other bloggers are having trouble filling their spots too. I think this game would have worked better as a 1:1 ratio instead of a 1:3 ratio. As such, I asked Zarafa if she wants to be my third giftee - she is making me something after all!

Too bad I don't have a blog!

Ah ha! What good timing for me to create a blog! Did I make it as one of your three?

And I forgot to add, I'd like to request to join PIF.
