blanket of note

Joining in with Show and tell with my WIP. It will  be a WIP for a looooong time to come. I ordered a blanket set from Meraki Studio- 10 skeins of beautiful wool making a rainbow. I wanted this blanket to be long enough to cover my very tall husband when lying on the couch in mid winter (with the fire flickering in the corner, holding a glass of mulled wine...ha!). I realised after making a band of zig zags in double stitch that it would not be nearly long enough with the blanket set. So I ordered 6 more skeins (a slight overkill but I have a fear of not having enough fabric/ wool. A justified fear in my defense.)

It's double knit using a 5.5mm hook in zigzags loosly based on a pattern I have used before. As this is going to be so very long I think I may need a border to make it more of an even rectangle. We'll see. In the meantime I have another 7 and a bit skeins to go....
