Pay It Forward

I joined a Pay It Forward swap - started by Nurhanne (love her lace - love!). I'm a degree removed from her (Hi Kat!), and can only hope that I get someone (well, three someones) to sign up from me. Here are the guidelines:

“I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”

What a great idea! I also want to specify - I don't think that the gifts need to be knitted. It's about handmade gifts, so soaps, sewing, quilting, jewellery, hand spun and dyed yarn, etc. are all possibilities. And, as the people who sign up need to have a blog (or cannot continue the Pay it Forward chain with their own commenters), it's easy to go back through the archives and get a sense of what each person likes. Yep, I like this.

I can't claim credit for starting it and don't know who did either. I tried following the track back when I joined, but got sidetracked somewhere along the blog trail :-)
You like my lace *blush*, TQ

I would love to join the Pay It Forward "circle". :) Is there anything else I need to do? Oh and I absolutely loves Beatrice - she turned out great!

I tried to reply to your email on ravelry, but you have messaging turned off.

Yup, it's me. My email is captstern2002@yahoo.ca if you want to send me an email.
