So, I'm attempting to learn how to knit. I've tried before, but I get easily discouraged. I had learned how to crochet, but never got far with it.

I found this pattern for an iPod cozie - http://chocnvodka.blogware.com/blog/_archives/2005/8/26/1172247.html - and I really want to learn so I can make it.

Only problem? I'm having a terrible time finding a site that explains knitting well. Any ideas?

The knitting help website has videos to help get you started, plus a glossary of most knitting terms, many with videos that aren't in the basic ones. You can also search for them on You tube, but they're not organized in the way they are a KH. http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/learn-to-knit

I just started knitting (teaching myself), and this is the video I used to get me started:

There's more of them, like a video for the purl stitch, but that basics one helped me a lot.
