Comfy Blanket

Life is like a blanket too short. You pull it up and your toes rebel, you yank it down and shivers meander about your shoulder; but cheerful folks manage to draw their knees up and pass a very comfortable night.

Lying on a reading chair with a blanket, one frequent (well, first-world) problem is that the blanket fails to cover my feet. It just slips to the side, and then it is difficult to wrap it around so the blanket covers the underside of the legs well.

Given that it is a rather cheap but warm blanket, why not sew it shut on all but one side?

Just fold the blanket, use a sewing machine (or do it — gasp — by hand), and run a thread to the long side and the short side at the feet end.

Blanket with the sides sewn shut.

The result is a blanket tube (with one closed end) that avoids exposed feet.

Comfortable reading without exposed feet.

Happy warm reading.
