Pay It Forward is based on the movie with Helen Hunt and Kevin Spacey. It was a book first, written by Catherine Ryan Hyde. With all of the things happening these days, random acts of kindness are a good thing. I haven't read the book or seen the movie, but I think it will be going into my Netflix queue now :)
This is what the PIF Exchange is all about. I’ll send a knitted gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange! I don’t know what that gift will be yet, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, maybe not until 2009…LOL… but you will receive it within 365 days, that’s a promise! The only thing you have to do in return is then 'pay it forward' by promising to do the same on your own blog.
I am very excited about this project and I can't wait to see who will comment first :)

Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn! I'm doing a KAL with some of my fave ladies, Wendy, Chan, and Stacey for the Anastasia Socks toe up. I have never done toe up, but I'm excited to try it!
This is some fantastic yarn I picked up. It's Araucania Ranco Multi in an amazing colorway. I picked it up for socks, but it might turn into something different... Who knows.
I have finished the heel and the decrease and I'm moving in on the rest of the foot.
My friend Ora has a BEAUITFUL garden of just herbs and peppers. I got out my camera for our weekly Tuesday night dinner and took some pictures of her beautiful peppers. They are HOT!! The brownish pepper is a Chocolate Habenero, on the information tag it says "intensely hot" I will not be trying one of those! :)
I love the detail that my camera can pick up on different things. I'm so glad that I bought my Nikon D60. It's been so fun to practice taking pictures again. I think I'm getting better... slowly!
Hopefully, I'll have a FO after this weekend!!! Wendy and I are going up to her parents campground in PA for a weekend away and a Hog Roast!!! Oh I love a good hog roast. Should I wear the shirt we had made for the last one we had? :) It has a picture of a hog with an apple in its mouth, pretty funny!!!
