Hopefully these will help... (from this website!)
There's a demo of a small project here:
http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-tips

Also something I find useful is the glossary. That way if I don't understand a stitch or something, it's shown live instead of with pictures. http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-glossary

Good luck!

I wish I had picked up knitting needles instead of fritos when I quit smoking 5 years ago. It would have saved me at least 40 pounds that I just finally got rid of last year!

I'm convinced that I wouldn't have gained the weight if I'd had knitting to keep my hands busy instead of food.

Congrats & don't give up!! It's definitely worth it. And spend time with Amy & her AWSEOME "how to" videos...I wouldn't have learned half as much as I know so far without her instructions and this site.
