My grandma taught me to knit when I was little, but I didn't knit anything between the ages of 7 and 31, so I forgot pretty much everything she taught me. I re-taught myself by watching Amy's videos.
A lot of the mechanics of knitting, you just learn as you go. When you make a mistake, try undoing your work to see if you can fix it. That will teach you a lot about the construction of knitted fabric. Also, there are tons of helpful videos and tutorials around- here, on youtube, on blogs like www.yarnharlot.ca
, and tons of help available from other knitters here and around the web. Check out the 'knitters knear you' section of the forum- you might find other knitters to get together with.
