Hang it up somewhere. I just stick blankets in the furnace room in my house but I realize most houses don't have that... If you have a deck, you could stick it out there to dry... However, depending on your weather, it might be too cold. :/
Basically, a railing/post that's long enough to fit the entire blanket is what you want. And you're going to want to turn it over a few times since the side facing up will dry faster.
I suppose hanging the blanket on hook in a warm place would work too, it just might take longer since it's not as spread out.
Washing blankets is a pain. That's why I don't, unless it's the summer.
Hopefully someone with more blanket washing experience will come along and help you more/better... :)
Alternatively, you could try the drier, but I've heard that the drier gets too hot or causes the blanket to shrink or other possible equally terrible things, I just can't remember entirely precisly anything other than turnout blankets=no drier!!
