Have you looked at amy's vidio's? I think knitting is under "Basic techniques"

There are videos demonstrating the knit stitch (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/knit.php) and then the purl stitch (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/purl.php), and many other videos for other techniques such as increasing, decreasing, binding off, and other fancy stuff. Up top in the 'Basic Techniques' and 'Advanced Techniques' tabs.

Also, a great video is the demo of a small project (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php) which takes you from cast on to bind off and everything in between.

Hope you find this helpful.

Here's another site that you can print out to have next to you while you are learning, too.
