Pay It Forward

This is something very cool I came across yesterday. PDXKnitterati is a fan of Eskimimi Makes, and so am I--her artwork is so whimsical and fun. They're both participating in a "pay it forward" project and since that stuff brings out the mynah-bird-steals-shiny-things in me, I'm doing it too.

Here's the deal (which I also stole):

1. I will send a surprise gift to the first three commenters on this post. The gift will be handmade by me. It will be sent sometime in the next 365 days. It will be a surprise. We all love getting surprises in the mail, right?

2. To sign up and receive a gift, you must play along, too. Pay it Forward on your blog, by promising to make a surprise for the first three people who comment on the post.

3. You must have a blog (that is updated, as I will blog stalk you to find the right gift for you).

4. After commenting here, you must repost this or something similar to your blog in 48 hours. If not, I will chose the next person who commented.

Don't give up if you’re not in the top three. Just head on over to the blogs of the comments who got here first and see if you're in their top three. The rule is you have 48 hours after your comment appears to post the Pay It Forward on your own blog, otherwise I have to skip over you and move to the next commenter. And it doesn't matter where you're from. I'm happy to send packages to any place in the world.


  1. I saw this on Eskimimi's blog the other day and I want to play, too. Is it possible that I'll be in your top three? That would make my day!

    I'm Sara and I blog at My email is wooldurhamATgmailDOTcom. :)

  2. I love this idea and would love to play.

  3. I love this idea! Don't count me as one of your three, I just signed up on Sara's blog. Thanks for spreading the fun!

  4. ME ME ME!!!!! TOP THREE!!! ME!

  5. Don't forget--if you didn't make the top three here, check out the blogs of the three who did. You could make THEIR top three!

  6. This is so much fun. I signed up on Sara's blog yesterday!

  7. What a cool idea! I was also happy to go to google reader for the first time in a week or so and find 3 posts by you. yay. :) I was looking at the Japanese patterns at the Boulder knit shop a couple of weeks ago. I was very intrigued!


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
