try searching on youtube or other video websites, if you are a visual learner.
i find them very useful, because i can pause, repeat the video, and often find one person who has put up a few good ones, once i find an inital gem.
i'd go try and find one now, but the computer i am on has no sound
just try "how to knit" in the search engine, watch a couple, and see what works with your learning style!
good luck, and keep us posted with your progress!
oh, and before i forget, don't be worried if it takes a while, or if your first project (or first few) aren't what you were hoping for - my first few turned into washcloths, where perfection doesn't matter
! Knitting is a series of patterns, and it can take some time to learn the patterns, and to understand what the piece is telling you when there is a mistake.
