The 100+ Club

Today, I want to share with you all photos of two amazing knitters:

This is Leila from Leeds, who just knit her 100th hat for Israeli soldiers!

And this is the amazing Natalie from Florida who sends me a box of about 20 hats every 4-6 weeks! I know, can you believe it?!? 

There are some incredible knitters out there and I'm deeply grateful to all of you for your ongoing dedication to this project. Knit on, ladies!We're having a cold winter here. It may even snow this weekend. 

If you need a little inspiration, here's a note from the mother of a soldier in Maglan, an elite fighting unit:

I want to thank you so much for the warm amazing hats that we gave to Maglan!  They are not able to write to you now, but they will when they return to base.

A little to tell the knitters:  Maglan just received the Ramatkal Prize for excellence this month [the Ramatkal is the Chief of the Israeli Army -- CK]. They are a fighting unit and they developed some new anti-terrorist tactics.  They work very hard and would be at a comparable level to a top USA Commando unit.  They want the knitters to know that their hats, which were so lovingly made, are literally helping them "keep their heads" warm in the bitter cold terrain that they are training on.

May you merit to see loads of blessing coming from your incredible endeavour!
