    I have loved this since I first saw it a year ago. I FINALLY had a friend have a baby so I had an excuse to make it, lol. I am in the process of making squares. I’m not too worried about the seaming, one or two a day, and in a week or so it will be done. So excited, love mixing colors!

    […] rainbow? Tanis of course! You can read more about my obsession with colourful Tanis¬† blankets here and here. That bin of rainbows is a never ending source of inspiration to me and I thought: why […]

    That’s gorgeous. A friend just gave me a huge bag of lovely different colours of wool 4ply. Maybe this is what I need to do.

    Soooo gorgeous!! I don’t mind seaming, and I’ve just added this to my queue- I think I’ve developed a nice DK stash that would make a perfect Vivid blanket. All the FOs I’ve seen of this are stunning- and your newest one is a knockout.

    I love the palette! This is such a gorgeous pattern! Why wouldn’t you knit it twice?! Seaming is definitely the worst part for me too.
    I’m currently obsessed with baby blankets so I think this might be my next one!

    Congratulations! The blanket is beautiful. You’re not obsessed with the pattern, just wonderfully in love with it. And why not be? Your results are beautiful.

    Absolutely beautiful! My obsession right now is tank tops and shawls/cowls.

    Gorgeous! I love the colors and the pattern. Since I am also a quilter, it looks like a beautiful quilt too.

    No wonder you’re obsessed with this pattern, it is such a lovely blanket! I can image it in neutral colours, in shades of blues… I tend to obsessed with patterns too, once I found something I like, I knit it repeatedly: one for me, one to gift away, another one for me, a different colour, a different yarn texture… Your blanket is now on my ToKnit list.

    This is a lovely blanket. I also like repetition as it allows me to “think” and put things to rest. However, like you I am not fond of seaming. This blanket would definitely be worth the seaming, though. Thank you for sharing the lovely pictures.

      Thanks! The seaming took 3 hours, so a movie and a bit, not too bad at all!
