I just joined here about a month ago myself. This site was a gift from heaven, and ESPECIALLY those videos! She covers EVERYTHING pretty much! I mean, not like projects from start to finish, but she shows you just about everything you'd need to know to do beginner, intermediate and advanced level stuff! Yeah, for blow-your-mind-intricate you'd probly want someone to show you in person but for now I'm doing scarves and hats and gloves and socks, but I'd never be able to do what I'm doing if it weren't for this net here on KH.
Hope you're having as much fun as I am picking up a new hobby! It's expensive though...! Do yourself a favor and go to the hardware store and pick up some wooden dowels in the smaller gauages. I got 5 sizes that roughly correspond to size 4, 5, 7, 9 and 13. The dowels are 4 ft long, so I had the guy chop them all in half to make it easier to carry home. Then each 2ft piece was cut into thirds, giving me a total of six pieces of each thickness. Add some sandpaper for finishing and viola! Double Pointed Knitting Needles! In a few of the sizes I got a second dowel to make regular straight needles, I'm still trying to figure out a way to make a pair of circs... Anyway, the whole thing cost about 8 bucks!
