Pay it Forward

OK, it's been a stupendously good week here at chez chaos. Not one, not two, but three missing friends are back in touch. Karma gave us an unexpected windfall, I had a brilliant (yet scary) parents evening, Isaac's asthma remains under control and I've made it safely to my third trimester of this pregnancy. Right now, I have a LOT to be grateful for.

Inspired by this: http://stitchandbitchlondon.wordpress.com/2007/11/05/pay-it-forward-sharing-the-stitching-love/ I want to join in, and share the stitching love. My family has had a lot of generosity over the years and I want to send some out there to the rest of the universe.

To participate, please leave me a note in the comments, and I'll craft something especially for you, the first three (only three?) respondents and post it out within the next 6 months. It could be knitted, might be sewn, might be some beautiful handspun. Depends who it's going to, if you see what I mean? Also, if you can, please consider doing the same yourself. I know a lot of knitters give a lot to charity, but this isn't charity. It isn't because there exists a need, or a void to be filled. It's because you'll make someone smile, and make the world a better place.

Ooh!
Pick me!

I'd love a little something in celebration of still being able to celebrate.
A ruptured brain aneurysm in May hasn't kept me down. :)

OK, I'm full (and I am going to have to get some sleep in at some point before my 31st) but the ever-lovely Jenn has spaces. AND she's a better knitter than me ;)
