Hi all. I need help. I am expecting my first baby and in turn trying to knit my first baby blanket. And am getting stuck on the second row of all places. The yarn keeps coming unraveled and then the string between the two needles keeps getting longer and longer to the point where I can't manage it and it ends up in a knot. If anyone can tell me how to avoid this. I'd be so grateful. Thanks in advance.

That's actually your first row... The cast on is not considered a row and you probably used the backward loop which is not a good one for more than a few stitches. It always makes big loops like that. Try the knit or cable caston shown on the Cast ons page and you'll be less frustrated and actually able to knit.
