paying it forward :: a swedish autumn

autumn scarf

In November last year I joined in with pay it forward. My dear friend Moa signed up to play too. Sadly for me, but great for her and her family, she is moving back home to Sweden in a couple of weeks. The motivation and inspiration to get a move on with finishing my pay it forward projects. It will be autumn in Sweden when she arrives home and the yarn that I used to make this scarf is ‘autumn’ 10 ply luxury wool yarn from BWM.

I’m really going to miss Moa and her mob. We met in ante-natal classes prior to the birth of our first children, and we laboured in the same birthing centre at the same time. Our first born children arrived in this world only hours apart, we have been a part of the same mother’s group and then playgroup. Our children shared their third birthday party together this year.

Moa really liked the scarf. It was so lovely to make a surprise for her, hand deliver it and have the opportunity to see her expression as she opened it. My other pay if forward projects will be travelling via the postal service, one across a desert and the other across a huge ocean as well.
