A couple of weeks ago, I was surfing my favorite blogs and noticed this in my “Notifications” drop-down:

Congratulations on getting 100 total follows on Agujas.

I was stunned. Perhaps some of you have hundreds, even thousands of followers and are not easily impressed. But to me, it was an incredibly joyous moment. I get so much pleasure and personal satisfaction from writing and publishing posts on Agujas. I am able to share my passion for knitting, and the occasional travel post, with people from all over the world. But the best part about blogging is joining a vibrant online community. I feel like I have 100 new friends! I enjoy reading and seeing the works of others and having online conversations. There are several of you whom I feel I know, like catching up with a dear old friend.

So, first and foremost, thank you for following Agujas.

Because I felt like celebrating, I painstakingly culled Agujas’ WordPress, Twitter and email followers in chronological order to find the 100th follower. (I eliminated the husband and child because they are required to follow my blog).

The 100th follower is Caity Rosey of All She Wants To Do Is Knit. As a small token of appreciation for following Agujas, I am pleased to send you some wonderful yarn from Habu Textiles to add to your stash. I love this delicate yarn that is spun or woven using traditional Japanese methods. I recently posted about my visit to the Habu Textiles studio which you can read here.

Caity, I will have the yarn shipped directly to you. Please send an email to Veronica (at symbol) AgujasBlog (dot) com with your mailing address.

Sinceramente y de todo corazón, gracias a todos. I look forward to reading your posts and responding to your comments on mine.
