Pay it forward

I have joined the Pay It Forward Challenge:The first five people to respond to this post (via the comments section) will get some form of "art" made by me. It will be a hand crafted item made from sewing, crocheting, stitching, decoupage-just about anything. I will try to make the item something special just for you. After you comment, please email me your snail mail address . In return, each person will post the same action on their blogs and pledge gifts to the first five to respond, and so on. I think this sounds like a lot of fun and a good way to improve your karma!
My email is rachael@gmx dot de - you know how the dot thing works.
These are the socks I am working on at the moment. The little pink and red one is for one of my god daughters, whose birthday is in ten days. The green one is for her mother. The green yarn is Austerman step which is super soft and the pattern is a baby cable which is one of my favorite patterns. The blue sock is a pattern I am making for the first time and I really like the way it is coming out. The blue and pink yarns are both from Opal. I am also knitting a sock on two circs for the first time and I have to say - I hate it- give me 5 DPNs any day. The only thing I can think of is that my cables are too long. I will finish these socks on the circs in the hopes that I will get used to them . They are great for taking with you. Scrabbeling around on the floor of a train after a dropped DPN isn't really fun.

Gorgeous socks, Rachael. Now, unfortunately, I'm already signed up for the 'Pay it Forward' thingie via Carol's blog, otherwise I would have jumped at the opportunity. It's a great idea!

Truthfully, I have tried the two circs for socks and I really like it, BUT I used the long needles first and wasnt happy so i switched to short ones and was much much happier. Maybe give the shorter ones a short before you give in!! GREAT colors on the opal

Hey Rach,
If you don't get five for pay it forward, we can exchange things with each other. I told Barbara that too.
