Let me tell you about it, these are the instructions: "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. So here’s 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 6 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.
I will now Pay It Forward to you THREE, I wonder who you will be?! Please, be a PIF! You will enjoy it just as much as we do!"
And, remember...you have 6 months to get your gifts done! Come on, you know you would love to be one of my angels. Then, one day, but you don't know when....you will get a gift that I have made especially for YOU!
Please remember, you don't have to knit or crochet to participate, anyone who can make a nice handmade gift is welcome to join :)
Again a big Thanks to Bea!!! She's great!!

Your result for Which Chess Piece are You Test?...
The Queen's Knight
Congrats! Only 4-5% of the population score this!
The Queen’s Knight is armed with rose-colored glasses. The mundane comes to life and nature becomes expressive of spirit. The interesting thing about this Knight is the ability to switch from fantasy to reality. There are exceptions to the rule, but this is the type that may have had imaginary friends as a youngster. Their stuffed animals also were great companions. The Queen’s Knight will see the good in almost anyone or anything – but their depth of emotion can remain hidden even from themselves. Circumstances tend to reveal sudden responses.
Not all life is rosy and this Knight is not exempt from disappointment or frustration with humanity. They may feel incompetence when dealing with their own ethical values. Things aren’t simply white black, but a grand battle of Good versus Evil. Evil must be reckoned with but Good shall eventually win. It is not that they fight evil, but that they fight for the essence of moral good. Doing something good is quite satisfactory for them and indeed increases their happiness. It is when something is not reciprocated to them that they are saddened and disappointed by others. They learn that others aren’t as self-sacrificing.
The Queen's Knight is dominated by an inner world of intense feeling and deeply rooted ethics. They seek to form their life based on their views. They are highly curious of those around them so are readily accepting of others unless their values are being threatened. They promote insight and understanding amongst others and contribute well thought ideas. They however can be a bit too idealistic.
Your result for The Sorting Hat Test...
You scored 20% Slytherin, 20% Ravenclaw, 68% Gryffindor, and 32% Hufflepuff!
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart.
Gryffindors are known for their courage, audacity, and devotion to what is good and honest.

"Why can't you tell a pig a secret?"
Now, I seem to remember this same riddle going around when I was in grade school and we won't even think about saying how long ago that was!! LOL!! I still couldn't remember the answer!! Now, I'm a BIG pig person and I really love them, especially the "for real" pigs. Not the pot bellied kind, the kind that ends up over 500 lbs. I used to raise pigs in a previous life (when I was in my 20's) and we had one that I had bottle raised that thought it was a dog and could open our back door and come in the house and make itself at home. She lived with the dogs and never set foot in the actual pig pens. I had city cousins over once and when that 750 lb sow walked into the kitchen I thought they were going to have a stroke!! LOL!!
I still couldn't remember the answer!!
On a knitting front..... I've got 4 shawls on the needles and 2 more to start. I'm on the 4th clue of the Goddess Knits Ann. Shawl and have just printed up her new one the MS9!! I have Jeanie Townsend's Ivy Leaf Shawl almost finished to send to a really special lady for a prayer shawl. I have the Mystic Meadows on the needles, but I think that's headed for the frog pond and I've got the Spring Mystery Stole from Goddess Knits going great!!
I'm working on my second 1000 yards for the Seasons of Lace competition.
And I still couldn't think of the answer.
Answer: "Because he'll SQUEAL!!!" ROFLMAO!!!!!
O.K. I've never really grown beyond grade school!!! Thanks so much to Sadie (sitnknit on Ravelry) for that one!!!
