  1. I really like my weighted blankets. I ordered a throw size first, then realized that I needed a full size. The weight truly helps me get to sleep and return to sleep when I wake up during the night. My only wish is that the blankets would stay put a little better, as they tend to slide off to one side or the other. Overall, a great buy and worth the cost!

  2. I like the selection of stitches. What is the best way to count the stitches? I've had to restart my blanket several times because I keep dropping stitches.
