Thank you!







You are all utterly wonderful!








I really can't thank you enough for this amazing stealth project. I was totally blown away (as Kate can attest) and couldn't really believe she had organised and coordinated this and you had all participated.








Thank you for our knitted hug. A hug which will be much used by both of us in coming years.





I still can't really believe you all did this - so thank you all a thousand times over.

You gave me the greatest gift, even without this - your time, your skill, your thoughts and....
your friendship.

If karma rules (as I'm sure it does) you will all receive wondrous rewards for making me so happy!

Thank you so much for posting pics. It looks fantastic! I can even see my squares :)

I'm really glad it has had the desired effect. I wish you and your family peace and joy, now and for 2009.

Thanks for posting pictures! I can see my squares too. :-) I called my husband in to see and he agreed it's so very cool that a few squares I made are part of a blanket that's sitting on the grass in Tasmania. What a small world it seems this morning. (He also said it was nice to see some bright green grass!!)

Enjoy your hugs, dear. I hope it warms you both heart and soul.

It's absolutely beautiful. Knitters are a grand lot, aren't they? Wishing your family love and peace from all the way over here on the other side of the world!

Now I think I'm going to go have a good cry! Yep, I can see my squares as well.

I feel privileged to have taken part, and I hope it keeps you warm and well-loved for many long years.

Squeee!!! Wonderful pix--thanks for posting them--it's like 'instant karma' just to see it! May that blanket hug the both of you for many years to come.

I was waiting for the photo. It looks wonderful. Kate did a wonderful job and I am so glad you are enjoying it. Think of yourself surrounded by our love and good wishes.

Jejune said...

You're very welcome!!! Wow, it turned out so well! Kate did a brilliant job, running everything, too!

I only wish I had a magic wand to 'make it all better'. Lots of hugs and love xxxxxooooo

Thanks for posting pics, its fabulous to see it all together! KK did an amazing job of bringing all those squares together.

There's a hug and a wish in every stitch!

blackie said...

Alwen said...

Aw (scuffs toe), you're welcome!

(And thanks, Kate, for coordinating this!)

It looks like Blogger is thinking of holiday food: my verification is figseses!

Thanks for helping me do this folks. Tink was utterly thrilled - and continued to be so for the 18 or so hours until we left. The Accountant was pretty pleased, too :>

Donni said...

It didn't take a second for me to agree when Kate asked. Sometimes a knitted hug CAN take the place of a real one - given that we are all so far away yet in this project we are all together with you.
