Pay It Forward/ Random Acts of Kindness

I have been participating in Sheri's RAK month and having so much fun. Last night while catching up on some blog reading, I noticed that Knitting Linguist is participating in the Pay It Forward Exchange and I just had to get in on it. She is not the first I've seen participating but I'd been on the fence as to whether or not I'm capable of joining in. (being such a new knitter and all) Well, last night I decided to just do it why don't you come join me!

“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!

Please remember, you don’t have to knit or crochet to participate, anyone who can make a nice handmade gift is welcome to join.

I'm looking forward to seeing who will be my angels!

Now I'm off to do the nasty mundane things like pay bills and such before I can spend the rest of my day knitting.

I'm so glad that I'll get to knit for you for pay it forward (and so you don't have to count me for one of your recipients)! Thanks for joining in :)
