Pick some inexpensive, light colored yarn and a pair of needles. I'd suggest worsted weight (Red Hear Super Saver is worsted weight and is readily available, inexpensive) and U.S. size 8 needles or larger and then start casting on. http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/cast-on
There are some excellent videos on this site, after you know some terms you can search for other videos if you want.
Light colored yarn allows you to se what you're doing more easily than darker colors will. I think a solid color would be better than a variegated yarn. Size 8 or larger needles will work well with worsted weight yarn.
I started with plastic needles that came in a kit with a book. You don't need to spend a small fortune on needles before you figure out what you're doing.
