Some 70 odd squares later I am nearing the end of this project. Once I find time to sew all the ends in (the bit I hate) I will post some pictures. In the mean time it got me thinking how much I need a decent blanket or throw in my life. Over the winter months putting this blanket together made me realise just how cosy they can be. I felt like a granny with it draped over my knees but boy was it warm. Until I had children I never really had the need for a blanket and thought it was a bit weird when I was given one for my 16th birthday, now I rarely go anywhere without one. They are so useful, for that impromptu picnic indoors or outdoors, the odd trip to the beach or a tired baby in need of a little nap. Maybe this should be one of my key investments for 2015.
Here are a few of my favorite blanket picks.
