I just started knitting in November, and I have to say, most patterns have explanations of anything out of the ordinary, and everything else is covered somewhere on this site. I recommend finding a pattern you LOVE, and will keep you motivated, and just try it. I did a scarf as my first project, and I did have to frog it once, but I really liked the pattern (and so did my brother, now I have to make him one in manly colors.) I then attempted to modify a hat pattern to match the scarf, and while my gauge was off, I still made a hat and learned about knitting in the round in the process. Most recently, I finished a sock from Silver's sock tutorials and this time it actually fits! So I say just find a pattern that you are willing to stick with and go for it.
