I’d like to start out but stating I know absolutely nothing at all about knitting except for some simple rectangles my grandmother taught me to knit when I was 7 (cherished memories never go away).
While walking through an arts & crafts store, my girlfriend mentioned that she wanted to try a knitting project with thick wool. All I know regarding this is that she couldnt find a bundle with thick enough wool at this store. I dont know if “thick” is the right term, but im guessing she wants something to do large weaves with for a blanket? I’m trying to think of a good Christmas gift and my idea was to order the wool, large needles and basically everything she needs to just go right ahead and make what she wants to make! Would I also need some sort of board/loom?
Any recommendations on an all-inclusive knitting setup for large/thick weave projects would be greatly appreciated, thank you
