i came across one of my friends who had posted the following:
Pay it Forward 2011:
I promise to send something handmade to the people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this and send something they make to people who comment on their status. The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your people sometime in 2011. I'll contact you for an address.
like anyone in search of their creative muse
i decided to take it a step further...
the cramped fingers pose or looseendsasana.
in my corner of the wires
i am paying it forward
and promising that
if you leave me a comment
and a way to contact you
make you something with my own two hands.
|it will probably involve yarn...|
be you an old friend
a new friend
an estranged friend
or complete stranger
i vow that i will put the same amount of time
into each item i produce.
the key is
in your own way
do the same to pay it forward;
post this to twitter
make a batch of cookies for the widow down the way.
hand draw a card for the co-worker that's had a shit week.
knit booties for that baby that's nearly here.
throw together a basket of items to help get your boss through the week
(be sure to include m&m's!)
no matter how you do it
cramp your fingers.
