I am a newbie to knitting. :shock:

I am trying to self teach myself to knit. What is the best size of needle to learn with and also what is the best size or easiest of yarns to learn on?

I hear that "Knitting is the new Yoga"

WELCOME!! :D

I would use size 10 US and an inexpensive worsted weight yarn, like Red Heart Supersaver. And certainly browse the videos here! ;)

Happy Knitting!

I'd recommend a light or medium colored (no dark colors because you can't see what's going on) worsted weight yarn like Plymouth Encore and US size 8 bamboo needles.
