The 100 Friends of Aidan the Knitter

OK. So Dr. Seuss I'm not. (Though I have been called absurd a few times...a day...every day.)

Where was I? Oh, yes.

Today I was doing my thing over to Ravelry, and a little bitty number jumped out at me.

I have 100 friends!

Now by the time you read this, the number may have changed -- that's what happens to intensely popular guys like me -- but I thought the number was monumental and deserving of attention.

Who, you might ask, is number 100? Her Ravelry handle is lilpixiestix. Her real name is Jeanne, she hails from Chicago, her favorite colors are green, orange and blue, and she is a knitting-evangelist -- she has converted two of her friends. (Fred Phelps is likely to picket her funeral for that!) Judging from the Ravelry Groups she frequents, it seems as if she likes The Simpsons, Drunken Promiscuous Sheep (Don't we all? Hi, Dolores!), and Girls Covered in Bees. I don't understand the last one, but it has something to do with Eddie Izzard.

Thank you, Jeanne, for being my friend and for making this moment so special. You know what they say -- you never forget your 100th!
