10 Throw Blankets to Warm Up Your Weekend

10 Throw Blankets to Warm Up Your Weekend

After a few days of warm-ish weather for January here in West Virginia (50 degrees!), I’ve been gathering twigs for kindling and pulling out my throws in preparation for a chilly, grey weekend. That means I’ll be making this tasty soup recipe once again, snuggling in front of the wood stove with my dog, Rex, and watching as many movies as I can squeeze in. While I prefer sunny and 70˚, I’m not complaining. Any time under my favorite blanket is a good time! This comes from a woman who begged her mother not to thrown away her “binkie” when she found it in the Goodwill pile at age 32.

My “binkie” is a rather smelly (from age), twin sized lime green electric blanket from my 8th birthday. Has the synthetic material pilled beyond belief? Why, yes, that’s very, very true. Of course, I lost the heat controller/power cord long ago. I really do need to retire it to the basement soon, so I’m checking out some new options. These 10 throw blankets, some of which are on sale, are looking pretty good! I’ve even been eyeing a very cute baby blanket for my lap while I work. Hilarious, I know. Don’t judge.

Click through for the slideshow of the 10 finalists! Note there are NO lime green ones. Which one do you like the best? –Caitlin
