Welcome to the forum!

Making knitty friends is always good so I hope you find some close by. In the meantime a lot of us learned to knit from this website in addition to a few others I'll link to. Grab yourself some yarn and needles and watch the videos that are linked in the tabs at the top of the forum. Start by just practicing casting on and learning the knit and purl stitches. Once you know those and your tension is good you can move on to harder projects.

Here's a few more links to help you out.
Lion Brand - Learn to knit
Knitting at Noon Videos

And here's a website to bookmark for patterns.
Knitting Pattern Central

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
