Our home is open-plan with wooden floors. We have a lot of windows so it can be cold. Double-glazed windows and thermal-backed curtains help keep the heat in but I love snuggling up with a knee rug. I chose these camel-toned ones as I thought they would be less of an eye-sore than some of our other blankets.

My tips - use a nice long stitch, mine was about 3-4mm long. A stretch/knit thread is probably ideal but I did not bother with that. You'll need a nice full bobbin or even two if you have a large piece of fabric and start with a good sharp needle. Try not to pull at the fabric as you stitch as it will stretch and you'll have a wonky side.
