Pay It Forward

Monday I received a wonderful package from Karen.  I had signed up for  Pay It Foward on her blog and here is 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.


She made the perfect napkins and of course the handspun Colonial Wool in "Agate Beach".  Thank you so much Karen.  Please sign up so I can Pay It Forward!

I have my Trick or Treat package ready to go and here is a sneak peek at the socks.


I have also finished the Secret of the Stole III and here it is in its unblocked state.


Alos I have been knitting more socks.


Just a plain vanilla sock in Vesper Sock yarn in the Strange Little Mama colorway.  Also notice the cute bag I ordered from Acornbud's Crafts in Hawaii.

Another plain vanilla pair of socks in Fortissima Socka.


Octpus Knits honored me with a blog award and I feel very honored.  She is an amazing spinner, knitter and photographer.


Here are the rules*:

1. Please put the award on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. You must nominate at least 4 fellow bloggers for this award.
4. Add links to the recipients.
5. Leave a comment so the recipients know they have received an award.

What a wonderful Pay It Forward gift! I love both the napkins and the handspun yarn (great job, Karen!). I'll have to recuse myself from your Pay It Forward offer since I've already done it this year, and I'm not quite ready to participate again :)

Your Trick or Treat socks are lovely (great "plain vanilla" socks, too), and I can't wait to see your stole blocked. I'll have to check out those blogs!

What a wonderful gift :) I've already agreed to do a PIF already but it sounds like you have something nice in store.

Thanks so much for the award!

You are such a kind person for nominating me -- thank you so much. I'm not able to do Pay It Forward, but I think it is a wonderful, affirming swap.

And wow, all those great projects!
