Total Knitting Novice!! (Help Needed!!)
Hello fellow knitters!!

Out of sheer frustration over learning how to knit, I've found and joined this site. Maybe you more experienced knitters can help me. I've been able to cast on easily. I can almost do it without thinking about it now. However, when it comes to knit stitching the first row, I've failed miserably time and time again. I am seriously at wits end. I've literally started over again and again, more times than I care to remember.

I am using 10 US 6.0mm acrylic needles (which I've heard are good for beginners) and some lavender/lilac colored acrylic yarn from Caron. I don't know if its worsted weight or not as the label doesn't say. Probably not. Is this a good yarn to start out with? Its nothing fancy, just a plane medium yarn. Whatever that means.

I am going to watch those "Knitting for Beginners" videos on this site, as they are free and I can use all the help I can get. In the meantime, anyone have any advice to help me from tearing all my hair out? Bald really isn't a good look for me.
