The 100th blanket

Seriously, folks. I really don't know what to say. I don't know if I'm silly, but this moment makes me a bit emotional. I guess I should write something dignified and noble, mut nothing comes to mind. All I can think of is the fact that everyone of us can do something for the greater good. You can donate money or volunteer for charity work. Or you can knit a square for a charity blanket. Or you can knit an entire blanket. (Or, if you are crazy enough, you can make 100 blankets.)

Peitto nro 100

Sadas peitto on upea! Onnea maailman hienoimmalle tilkkupeittoilijalle! Uskomaton suoritus, sunkaltaiselta pöhkeliäiseltäkin. :-D Halaus siskolta!

Your blanket is so beautiful!
You have had a very good idea, when you decided to knit 100 blankets for charity. All these colors bring the sun in our heart!

Onneksi olkoon sadannen peiton johdosta!
Makee peitto, vähän niinkuin kirkon lasi-ikkunat!

OMG! Uskomaton suoritus, uskomaton matka ja ehkä kaikista upein peitto koko projektissa. :-)

Kauniita peittoja ja tuo 100-saavutus on kyllä suorastaan uskomaton.
Onneksi olkoon!!

Huh, ihanan psykedeelinen. Lämpimät onnittelut saavutuksesta.

Wau, mikä peitto! Se on todella kaunis ja siinä on aivan mahtavat värit!
Hieno saavutus kokonaisuudessaan. Onnittelut siis minultakin sadasta peitosta ja sadannesta peitosta. Peitoilla on varmasti pieniä ja lämpimiä omistajia. :)

Your blanket 100 is spectacular!!! Now, if you knit number 101 for yourself, what "pattern" would you use--now that you've experimented with 100??

I just discovered your blog, through a link on the Mason-Dixon Knitting blog, and I LOVE it. You blankets are absolutely GORGEOUS, the most wonderful blankets I have ever seen. I think you should write a book about your blanket "journey." (I am serious.)

Tosi hienoja kaikki nämä tekemäsi peitot!
Mieletön saavutus. ONNEA!

Kiitos! Thanks! :)

Gail: You can find the answer to your question in today's post. I'm not keeping the blanket, but I most certainly am having a hard time giving it away. ;)

Just had to tell ya I think your blankets are absolutely incredible! Instead of letting yourself get beat down by life's trouble, you got busy and created works of art. Like Elizabeth Zimmerman said: "Knit on, with confidence and hope, through all crises". the energy in your knitting is amazing. I am so happy that i stumbled upon your blog through one the mason-dixon log cabin threads. I am knitting a log cabin right now for my church knitting group, and you have inspired me to just take those donated odd balls of red heart and caron yarns and knit 'em up into something fab for the local homeless mission and for the babies! You are quite a gal!
