Here is what the crocheted blanket looks like now...
red redheart yarn crocheted blanket in progress
The blanket is opened out on a queen sized bed. It is hitting just on the edge of the mattress the right side, and just on the edge at the head of the bed. But, it hangs over a lot at the foot. I wasn't going to measure it, but now I feel like I should to see that I'm actually making a difference when working on it! So... currently it is 45" wide by 86".
2 more skeins to go (plus the little bit left I'm currently on) hopefully. If it looks crazy proportion wise, I'll have to do the dreaded... and buy more yarn.
