Hmmm... @wrenkins you obviously have a better time at NY than I have ever done - I've never kissed anyone ( or been kissed ) even though we always stay up and have been married for 48yrs  :D :D

Here it is.  It's still on the pins as I am going to give it a border (but happily it doesn't need quilting or binding!).  When I lay it out, DD, who claimed the last blanket I knitted, asked, "Am I going to have this one as well?"

Oh gosh, that's gorgeous. I didn't really realise how effective it would look ( and such neat knitting too ;) ) I'm not surprised it's been claimed already and it'll be great to have a quilt to compare it too.

Are'nt you supposed to rush out and kiss a chimney sweep?

A chimney sweep? Never heard that before @Greybird. I wouldn't kiss mine if he was the last one left. I'll just stay indoors and kiss my own dirty midden thank you.  0_0

Thanks, all.  I was worried it would be too long and narrow, but it's wider than I thought.

Now to sew the ends in.  That'll take the rest of the year.

It's fabulous. And look how hot it got there about August/Septemer time.
I do like this idea. I'm going to put it on my list of potentials.

It's fabulous!  It seems ages since I said 'let's hope it's not all blue', and then look what happened!  :D

2 rows a day, @Iminei , so that there is a right side and a wrong side.

@Fiona M , you can see when I went on my hols  :) and the week I was shut in a classroom with 30 8-year-olds  :(

It's a wonderful reminder of the year.

I can also see when the 'Beast from the East' arrived.  Hope it's not like that again this year or next week will be white :ninja:
