Question from a novice

Hello, all.  Please forgive my newbie-ness, but I have a question.  I'm using size 9" needles and I want to make a blanket for my son's twin sized bed.  Can you tell me how many stitches I should use?

Thanks in advance!

first post-gauge question

hi all, i hope someone can answer my question. i searched the site,but didn't come across this exact problem. i've always been pretty loose about starting out getting my gauge and consequently have had the odd project just not workout. i am starting a project now that i a) really love and B) spent a little more for yarn then i usually do, so i want it to come out correctly. the directions say..."19 sts and 26 rows=4" in St st" so i measured out my swatch and i'm at 4" up and down but not side to side. i'm at3" and an 8th there. is this ok, or do i need to switch up to a larger size needle, but then will i get more inches up and down? i'm confused. any thoughts? thanks in advance....

I know, I know...I've been posting too much. But that's what happens when you work on 10 projects at once -- there comes a time when they all get done, and all at around the same time.

So here is my fifth FO in a week:
