    Knitting is very easy - all you need is to watch a few video's and you should be good, lots of practice and no fancy furry yarns to start with.

    Here is a very helpful website http://cyberseams.com/

    I taught myself which sometimes can be easier than having someone teach you since everyone has their own opinions on technique.

    Just start simple and don't let yourself get aggravated it is a fun and useful craft to learn.

    Feel free to PM with any questions you have along the way and I'll help if I can!

    I learned how to knit a couple of years ago from a little book from the craft section of Wal-Mart. Knitting is all based on a couple of simple stitches, and it was really easy to get the hang of it! You just need needles and yarn to get started--give it a try!
