I'm not familiar with the Knitting Night for Men. Is it held at your local yarn store? If so, I would imagine that you could go there and learn some techniques.

The videos here and elsewhere on the Internet are great, but I know that not everyone learns well from videos. If you can find someone to help you in person, I'm sure it would help a lot!

As far as ripping out your CO and 1st row of knitting, try knitting a few rows instead. See if the look of it improves as you go on. Each time I start a project my work looks weird and ugly until I get 5-7 rows in, and then it starts to look like something. I'm sure many others feel the same way. It's just part of starting something new; there aren't enough rows of knitting to make the piece look like it should.

Good luck and have fun! I'm sure you'll be knitting away in no time.
Courage is the magic that turns dreams into reality.
