PIF Exchange and Free Pattern Friday!!!!

I am so excited to announce that I am going to be a part of the "Pay it Forward" exchange!!!! Anni had posted it on her blog yesterday and I was fortunate enough to be one of the first three people to post a comment, which means that I get to participate. It is wonderful!

So, here is how it works:

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. You all know I’m already a PIF type of person. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

So the first three to comment on this post and who say they would like to take part will be my recipients. If I don't know you and have your e-mail address already, please include your e-mail address in your post so I can get hold of you. Once I've got my 3 recipients, I'll e-mail you to get your home address and just some idea of your favorite colours, yarn type, etc. I don't just knit--so I will need to know a little about you, what you like, and maybe what you like to decorate your house with.

Now, for the free pattern!

This is nothing really exciting, but it is a very useful item and very effective.


Materials: Approx. 8-10 yards of nylon netting that is in a 3-inch wide strip. Size 10 (US) knitting needles. Large tapestry needle.

Round Scrubber:

Cast on 8 sts.

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: k 2 tog, yo, k 4, turn

Row 3: K 6

Row 4: k 2 tog, yo, k 2, turn

Row 5: K 4

Row 6: K 2 tog, yo, k 6

Repeat these 6 rows 9 times more. Bind off. Use tapestry needle to sew circle together and work in ends.

Happy Knitting!
