Still friends after all these years. And sitting on my new couch blanket from Kohl's, originally priced at like 60 bucks but marked down to 24. Still a lot to pay for a couch throw but I bought it after sitting there watching TV one night and being cold and trying to get warm under a knitted throw that just didn't do the trick. Too many holes in the knitted throw that had been washed so many times that it was no longer soft and fluffy or at all warm.
I had gotten some cheap blankets at Walmart, $4.97 each, and while they were soft and warm, one washing and they went outside for cat blankets. You get what you pay for I guess.
Anyway, the blanket is warm and soft and the cats love it.
