After you CO, put the needle into your left hand and the empty needle into the right. Insert the right needle into the first stitch on the left, wrapt the yarn around it, and pull it back through. Then let the old stitch drop off the left needle and keep the new stitch on the right needle. Repeat.
Besides looking at the knit video, watch the one on Demo of a Small Project. That takes you from cast on to knitting a few row and the bind off.
