purple passion shawl finished:) and pay it forward



the shawl is finished and blocking. It measures approx 9foot by 4foot. I had to block it outside for space. Thanks to craftymandy on ravelry I had enough yarn to finish it. Not sure who it is for yet, it was just a "Need" to make . I was going to make a raggy edging but it was too fussy to try on the actual shawl as silky chic + mobair mohair boucle = nightmare to tink.
The sample I tried doing with other yarn looked ok so I think I am going to make a seaweedy edged shawl next. Just have to check through the stash cupboard what to use.
Keeping my fingers crossed the weather stays dry, there wasn't a cloud til I finished pinning the shawl and now its grey. Sod:(

I've decided to join the pay it forward movement.
And so :
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. Here is 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 3 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.
If you want to play leave me a comment. It could be an elemental figure, a shawl, socks or who knows:))

Ohh, I'd love to be a part of 'Pay it Forward'!

And I promise within the next 3 months to do the same on my own blog. :)

I'd be delighted to pay it forward, especially after all your kind words of support.

I'm up for this too, Amber. We always try to pass on our parking tickets if there is time left on them. A few days ago I gave a woman in the chippy some change as she didn't have enough cash for the treat her little girl wanted. She was amazed. I am a firm believer in 'what goes around, comes around'. I'll get it up on my blog in the next few days.

The shawl looks lovely! Glad I could help! And the Pay it forward idea sounds great. I've never seen the movie but the concept sounds a nice one.
