I think the best place for you to get started is http://knittinghelp.com.  There are great instructions there, videos, and really good beginner project ideas.  And maybe you can ask some of the girls who are knitting to help you get started too.  I've certainly made a lot of new friends through knitting Smiley

Good luck!

Try these sites for starters but there are lots more like them out there!



I would not charge your scarves $5 because you need to sell something for what it's worth and I'm sure cost of material and the time you put into it is worth much more than $5,  and if you undercut those girls you won't be making any friends there. Try making them in different colors and patterns and type of yarn than those other girls. Add pom-poms or tassels to yours or a simple flower. Anything to make yours stand out more. Good luck!
