Hi! I am thinking about investing in a wooden knitting board. I've purchased the Knifty Knitters ones, but I can't knit with Bulky yarn all of the time. I would like to be able to knit with different gauge yarns and such. I REALLY want to make a Harry Potter Trapped Bar scarf for the up coming(well, it's coming in November) HBP Release. I've knit a scarf on the knifty knitter long loom with bulky yarn, and it went by REALLY fast! I can probably knit faster on a loom than with needles, and I'd definitely love that if I'm going to knit a 6 foot long scarf.  Tongue

What size should I get? I'd like to be able to knit many things, maybe even a sweater some where down the line if I'm feeling brave. Mainly, I'll probably just be making scarves and maybe some handbags. What length should I get? Also, are there some great books I could pick up on knitting with a knitting board? Thanks a bunch. =]
