I've been PIFed

You may have heard about Mama-E's latest big adventure -- Pay It Forward.


A very kind and generous person who lives here --



-- took this wonderful idea to heart and started her own Pay It Forward, and I am the lucky recipient. Thank you so much, Abigail, for your very thoughtful gift!


She sent me candies -- yumm, half gone already; some lemon ginger cookies, which I am looking forward to having with some tea once it cools off enough for tea; a very cool cap; some catnip for Tidget !! -- and beautiful stripey blue Regia!


I think I see some more toe-ups in my future :-)

I am already working on my Pay It Forward to someone I appreciate for their thoughtful blog, their beautiful knitting and their willingness to share -- all qualities that I admire greatly. I am also working on starting another Pay It Forward, because it's a * Very Nice Idea * to let someone know that you appreciate them, and it would be totally cool to completely smother Mama-E's map with people who have been PIFed.

In the Other News department, I would like to thank everyone who voted for my silly little effort in the Amazing Lace. Thanks to you, I WON!!

I love the PIF idea! Abigail is so great and picked a wonderful person to appreciate. I just finished my first gaterlac (sp?) dishcloth. I love it and want to see what great enterlac projects I can find to try to conquer. I was also happy to see that in this months Vogue Knitting they have a whole article on enterlac. Great minds think alike.

I am thrilled for your winning LACE. Did you read my good friend PUmpkinNItter Pat's entries. They were wonderful as well.
