If you are totally new, videos are good for starts. Learning from a real person who you can ask questions of is better. This forum is good for the second, but... if you scroll down to Knitters Knear You, you'll find a good long thread of knitters from North Carolina.
Surely you could find a few near you and pm them. I'm certain they'd be more than willing to help you discover the Wonderful World of Knitting.
Here's a thought: I knit continental-style; it's much faster and more convenient (IMHO) than the right-hand-yarn-holding method most US knitters use. I'd seriously consider learning this way from the get-go.
