That tab says VIEW videos ... every time i have looked at it i have read NEW videos and i always wondered why nothing new had been added
im such a pea brain sometimes!
anyway back to the knitting.
I would stay just practice doing the knit stitch first. only when you are comfortable doing that is it worth moving on to the the purl stitch.
The loose stitch and the dropping of the needles will all get better with practice. Watch the videos (especially the small project one) and see how amy hold the yarn and needles.
They more rows you work the more comfortable they will get inyour hands. Don't worry if you don't hold things exactly the same way, it is all down to personal preferance, but it is ood to use as a basic guide as it keeps things in their proper place.
