Um, so this is probably silly, but I can't seem to correctly use stitch markers.  I end up knitting them into my piece.  What is the proper procedure?

when you get to the point where you nee dthe marker, just slip it onto the needle, and then carry on knitting. it's simple!

Exactly like april_cocaine said. The marker goes on the needle in between two stitches. When you reach a marker that has already been placed, just slip it onto the other needle and keep knitting!

First off, I don't know how to knit. At all. So I'm thanking you in advance for your patience.

I keep wondering what these stitch markers I keep seeing everywhere are for. Do they stay on your needles? How come one is usually different than the others?

Thanks in advance!

They stay on your needles to mark increments of stitches, both if you have a repeating pattern and to make it easier to count large numbers of stitches. One is different from the rest in case you want to knit in the round and need to mark the end of the row. The end of the row kind of disappears as you keep going around and around. It still matters, though, for patterns and such.
