Welcome!

My advice for you is to watch the Basic Techniques videos and don't be afraid to try something new. Try knitting your cast on stitches, watch the videos again, and if you're confused, come back here and ask questions. And then stick around for the fun!

Oh so that's how she did it! Amazing!

Yes, the videos are indispensible for learners! I'd also suggest looking for a class in your area. I'm taking one right now myself. Many parks and recreation deptartments have them, plus the are always at Michaels and Joannes. More expensive ones can be taken at the yarn shops.
