Hey Pinkish, and all those who haven't 'gotten' it- Don't despair! I PROMISE you can learn to knit!
You may want to check out the KLUTZ-brand book for knitting. I know it's written for little kids, but it really is quite helpful. Plus, it comes with materials. Also, when I first started knitting (I think I was ten or eleven so it really can't be that hard!) I just used a skein of yarn and knit in garter stitch, simply to get accostumed ot the feeling. It's hard to find the right feel, and keep from dropping/adding stitches, so when you start with something that doesn't have to look like a scarf, or a hat, or a sock, you don't feel pressured to make the project perfect. Really, I'm totally confident that you can learn to knit! Just practice and don't give up.
