I also highly recommend Knit Fix. It is always near me when I'm knitting. Between that book and this website, I have learned to correct my mistakes.

Remember that we all make mistakes, even the most experienced knitters, so don't be discouraged. Accept that mistakes are part of knitting, and like learning to knit and purl, it takes practice to learn how to correct mistakes.

Do you have some yarn you can play with and use for practice? That's what I do. I bought some bright, inexpensive yarn and use it to practice techniques before knitting on my 'real' project. I learn so much that way, because I'm not nervous about messing up the project or ruining the yarn.
