PIF (crochet style)...

earlier today I read Lazy Daisy Crochet & found out that Melissa is doing something neat - she's playing a pay-it-forward style of game she found via Oodles 4 Noodles (that she found on Create Bella Create) & crocheting surprise gifts for 3 followers. I just did one of these on FB and it was so fun... I enjoy surprising people with little gifts so I am going to play too! Here are the rules if you want to join in:

1.  I will send a surprise gift to the first three commenters on this post. The gift will be handmade by me.  It will be sent sometime in the next 365 days. It will be a surprise.  We all love getting surprises in the mail, right?

2. To sign up and receive a gift, you must play along, too. Pay it Forward on your blog, by promising to make a surprise for the first three people who comment on the post. 

3. You must have a blog (that is updated, as I will blog stalk you to find the right gift for you). Include your blog address in your comment. 

4. After commenting here, you must repost this or something similar to your blog in 48 hours.  If not, I will chose the next person who comments…Its that simple!! :)

I am looking forward to playing this fun game with my fellow bloggers and making something special and handmade just for them.  

Oh and please go check out the fun going on at Lazy Daisy Crochet, Create Bella Create and Oodles 4 Noodles!

WIP Wednesday...

a little of what I'm working on:

12" squares - patterns found on Ravelry via YarnCrazy Crochet World - a wonderful library of patterns!

a cute little crochet sweater - Ravelry link to pattern here

another sweater... a sleeve, button & flower left to do here - Ravelry link to pattern here

and, finally, a bath puff, or dishwashing scrubbie - modified version of this pattern... fun!

I am also working on a whole box of goodies for my swap partner for this Ravelry swap, and I am so excited as it's the first big swap I've joined. The box will be mailed out very soon and then I can't wait till she gets it so I can show you what I sent her!!
