I want to knit a small blanket for a friend. I have knitted a few things (super easy baby cardie, big moss stitch scarf), but am definitely a novice. I need nice soft chunky wool, was thinking of moss stitch with a border (saw a pattern in JL on Saturday).
I was thinking of debbie bliss cashmerino aran, but I need 8 balls and it works out to be super expensive. Any of you hipknitters got any top tips for nice soft, chunky wool that is a bit more purse friendly? And any great online shops - have googled, but am a bit out of my depth.
I thought that cream or a soft grey would be ok for a new baby?
