Me and my little 20 inch Ashford Knitters loom cranked out an 85 inch piece of material over the summer. This thing is huge! It is one of hopefully two or maybe even three panels in what might be a sort of throw type thing. I hesitate to say blanket because it is very lightweight. I used a cheapo acrylic because of the itch factor involved with having that much wool wrapped around my body. Besides, I couldn't even imagine how much it would cost to buy enough good wool to make something so big. Since I retired, I can't even afford enough to make a sweater.
