Knitted Blanket. Add Individuality and Easy Style To Your Home With A Knitted Blanket.

Knitted blankets are very beautiful and yet practical. You can use knitted blankets and throws for decoration in your home and to admire the work and beauty in them. 

You can also use them on a daily basis to wrap up warm with while cosying up on the sofa, while working, on the computer and as a wrap for passengers in the car. They make beautiful thoughtful gifts for a loved one. 

Here we have a lovely selection of knitted blankets from hand knitted to all different colours. There is surely a knitted blanket to suit most tastes. What an excellent way to keep warm and cosy and also many make a lovely gift.

Handmade Knitted Blanket

Grand Mom Inna - Handmade Knitted Blanket

Grand Mom Inna - Handmade Knitted Blanket- Mix Brown (60" X65")

A very special purchase. One is made at a time by a skilled knitter. usually one is available at a time in each colour. Pre ordering is possible. 

I love this timeless elegance and the fact that it would go in just about any room in our home. I like this colour for its versatility and beauty. Read more when you click through any of the links below to amazon for details and there are more colours both in the neutral range and richer colours.

You may however find that you need to wait for this blanket but are not all good things worth waiting for?

The reason is that Grand Mom Inna lives in Wingdale, NY. She actually makes each blanket by hand which takes her up to ten days to finish. There is usually only one colour available of each blanket and once that one is sold she will make a start on another one. More details about this if you click through to the Amazon site.

100% Irish Pure Wool Honeycomb Throw-60" X50"

A Simply Beautiful Irish Knitted Throw

This is a beauty of a throw from Ireland. Having Irish roots myself I was drawn to this lovely throw.

It is made of 100% Irish Pure Wool Honeycomb by the West End Knitwear which is Ireland's largest knitwear manufacturer.

I didn't know this but I have learned that the use of the traditional Irish honeycomb pattern is supposed to bring good luck!

I love all the tales that are associated with this knitted Irish throw. It is also said by some that it relates to the very hard working honey bee which is so important to human life. 

Another interesting fact is that knitted using Irish cable stitching which resembles the ropes the fishermen use and again is a luck symbol in the hope of a good days fishing.

A Knitted Blanket in Your Home.

When you purchase a knitted blanket you are holding someone's idea, someone's handicraft and care and skill. This is even more true if it is hand knitted.

There is something comforting and rustic and charmingly beautiful about a knitted blanket that I really love. I am not a knitter but I do appreciate knitted clothing and blankets and the work that goes into them.

There are so many lovely colours and combinations, lively patterns and cool designs and also the very simple beautifully made plain colours.

A knitted blanket goes well in any setting in any home be it ultra modern or rustic and cottage and everything in between.
They are very versatile used as pure decoration thrown charmingly over a chair or practical to be used by the family cosying up on the sofa.

An extra layer of warmth is often needed at night so we keep one in our bedroom, beautiful in its own right but on hand if we get chilly.
