Spread the Insanity, er, I Mean, Love


So I see this tonight over at Domestic Piracy and think to myself, wow, what a brilliant idea. Brilliant in the sense of moderately insane but, you know, irresistable nonetheless.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done in the next 12 months.
- You have no clue what it's going to be.
- I reserve the right to do something unusual.

The catch? You have to put this in your blog as well. Pass on the love!


That's the text as it appears on Ragnar's blog. I'm now going to copy shamelessly from her, because she's a crafty ho.

She proceeds: "I'm clarifying a couple of points. Firstly the item will not necessarily be knit. I'm a crafty ho, you know, it could be...I don't know, made out of chewing gum and Popsicle sticks. I also want to point out the specification that you have to post this on your blog...that means only people who blog are eligible. I'm not running some hand-made gift charity thing here. You gots to reciprocate."

Ditto. So you want something special? Me make for you something special! Get on board now and spread the crazy-handmakey love!

23 Feb. -- Okay, okay, I promise it won't be made out of popsicle sticks. Frankly, there is a 98.3% chance it will be hand-knit, and a 97.8% chance that you will like it. Now are there any takers?

What a fantabulous idea! Now, if I can just figure out how to break . . . I mean, get into the Fiber Arts & Animals Festival blog that Rick has been keeping, I could play too!

Um, Am I counting as a responder? because I had a terrible rotten horrible really bad day and could use the surprise of being a winner of something.

P.S. Do I get to send you something!?!!

Now that I read it again I think I send *you* something but then you send the 5 people who respond to you something--you don't send me something. (That would be cool, though! hehheh)

KJ, I'm really tickled that I get to make something for you, though...I think I know what it might be already...

Hey you! I did something similar (probably had the same etiology) a while ago on my wee blog:

But unfortunately I had no takers (insert sobbing now), but I'm happy to make you a swap! What do you reckon?

I love that you are on my "to-make-for" list. But I need to know how to send you the goods. I have some ideas already, but would love to know what your favorite color to wear is, and what your favorite color for your house is. Tell me!
