thanks for yr advice
Once you work those stitches, they'll be a lot wider than they are now. But basically, put the needle in your left hand and take the yarn that's attached to the ball/skein and make your first stitch. Look at the video for knit stitch and keep doing that over and over again. Don't be discouraged if it looks different than in the video.
Something I think all new knitters should do is get some cheap practice yarn and work with that before starting their project. Many of them get frustrated during the learning process and if they're not using the `good' yarn, I think their expectations aren't as high and they can relax more and learning is a little easier.
Just a couple cents worth....
