WIP - Estonian Lullaby Blanket

This is my first Fiber Trends' Estonian Lullaby blanket. I'm using Plymouth Encore worsted weight yarn in a pale jade colour. The photo is of the garter stitch border and the first 16-row repeat. The pattern is very simple to follow and is working up beautifully. I'm using a size 10 32" Addi Turbo needle, and I've got 6 200-yard skeins of yarn. The pattern called for 850 yards of worsted weight, but I've got 156 sts on the needles, more than the pattern required, but I want to make a larger lap throw so I added sts to the suggested number in the pattern. It's working up quickly and I hope to have it finished before the Knitting Olympics begin!
