I want to knit a blanket for my son, who will be here late November, but I have NEVER knitted before and don't have much confidence in learning to needle knit for starting out. Any recomendations for knitting with looms or boards so I can make a baby blanket?

The knifty knitter looms are widely available, inexpensive, and the instructions are easy to understand.  You could use either a round loom or a long loom for making a blanket, the knitting will be thicker if you use a long loom.  I like these best, and they are also useful for making things like purses (and scarves).  The round ones are maybe more useful for making hats, though.

 

Good luck!

Thank you! I'll try a long loom.
