Back in January during that gutsy (idiotic) time of New Year’s Resolutions, a cool thing went ’round facebook that was a take on the movie Pay It Forward. The idea was that person A would agree to take the first 5 people that commented on their status and give something they made themselves during the 2011 year. In return, those 5 people agreed to repost it on their own status, each taking 5 of their own. So you don’t get something if you don’t agree to give 5 somethings so the thing grows exponentially. Yeah, that’s about clear as mud. But it’s pretty cool. Trust me.
There are no rules. You can give anything you’ve made: bake cookies, take a meal, sew pot holders, weave a basket-whatever makes you happy. Presently, I’m knitting these socks for one of my peeps. Secretly, I had hoped to be finished before it was officially summer but summer happened when I wasn’t looking the other day, so my goal is by the end of June…only 7 days away.
And just look at this! Doesn’t it make you want to find a yarn in these variegated colors and knit a baby sweater?!
This rose bloomed in my backyard with no help from me-(a gardener I am decidedly not) the plant was here when we moved in and made this flower all by itself. I think it’s just lovely with its imperfect petals and glowing color.
laugh. dance. learn. create. knit.
