So, I learned some knitting in my old highschool crafts class. I’m almost a complete newbie at this. For my birthday my boyfriend got me something hand made that I loved, and I’d like to do the same for his birthday about… 2 months from now. I want to knit him a blanket, at least 3x3 in length&height. I have to learn how to knit, do a small practice project or few depending on how quick I catch on, and then begin knitting the blanket. I also understand it’s going to take a lot of dedication and time to do this. My questions are:
Is 2 and a half months a realistic time frame to knit a 3x3 blanket for someone who knows near nothing about knitting (I’m willing to put in two to three hours + daily)? Is writing hard to do? A lot of material on home made things I see isn’t what would be good for a blanket, it’s a little itchy. What kind of material would be good/durable for a blanket?
