You are a creature of comforts, and the combination of a rainy afternoon and a snuggly throw on the sofa is enough to derail your most ambitious plans to tackle the ironing or wash the dog. Give in to temptation with a cable-knit or crochet blanket throw, a herringbone toweling throw, a giant pashmina scarf, an embossed or distressed velvet throw, a quilted silk throw -- or any appealing length of finished fabric that can be folded, bunched or tossed attractively. Arrange your throw on the sofa by casually draping it over one arm, folding it lengthwise and hanging it carefully over the back, puddling it on the seat cushion, folding it into a square and setting it on the arm or among the toss pillows. While it's wrapped around you, it looks fabulous. Check that the throw looks equally fabulous by itself on the couch.
