It takes some knitting practice to decided what type of needle material you like best.

I suggest maybe getting yourself some bamboo needles and smooth, light colored, worsted weight yarn. That will be the easiest to work with to learn. If you can't find bamboo (or wood) then any other material is fine. Just practice.
