Ok, I'll Try Again

Susan at eieiomg has convinced me that I should resume blogging. I've had a long haul with a thumb injury since last November, and hadn't posted for the prior year. Perhaps this will get my mojo for this year going:

As part of the Hand Made Pay It Forward 2012, I hereby pledge to send something hand made (by moi) to the first five people who leave comments. But wait! Before you hit that publish button, there's a catch! YOU first five commenters have to pledge to do the same! It doesn't matter what you make, how complicated, or simple, it is. And you have to pledge to send them out by the end of 2012. So, there is no deadline looming over your shoulder, breathing guilt fumes down your collar. You have the whole year.

This should get a bunch of us going!

As a side note, there was an article on the various knitting groups at Dottie's Coffee Lounge in Pittsfield, MA. Here's a link where can see a video of all my chins in motion:

This should take you there.

We have a good time. There are three different groups hosted there. Come join us if you're local.

With luck, I'll be updating soon with picture of Nigora kids that are due imminently. When I threw the three Nigerian Dwarf bucks into the pasture upon their arrival in August, I forgot all about the older Angora doe already in residence. Apparently, at least one of the boys has functional equipment!

I have lost most of my technical blogging skills, which were weak to begin with. I'll do better, promise!


  1. This is a wonderful idea. I have a hat that is ready to be sent to a little person. I will plegde to make and give four more items in 2012.

    Just checking that it does not have to be 5 people on your list. I would rather give 5 hand knit things to a local charity either for auction or their clients.

    Get idea! Hope your thumb is on the mend.

  2. Hi, Anonymous: Fine by me on the charity knitting. I'll look you up and try to figure out how you got here.

  3. Kay, I'm so glad you're back on the blog! A great idea of the giftees - hand-made. Count me in. I do belong to a Craft Club and we do make squares that are sewn into blankets to be donated where needed. I'll make 5 gifts personal though Who knows - you might be a recipient of one - anon.

  4. Hi, I'm marking the days off of the calendar for the Mass. event. Can't wait to stop by your tent. Jackie
