Definitely get knitting! :teehee:
I started with US size 9 bamboo needles, a light colored, worsted weight variegated (multicolored) yarn, the Stitch n Bitch book by Debbie Stoller, and the videos on this site. It took a few months for me to really get the hang of it, but, with patience, you can succeed, and, you'll become addicted! :teehee:
For just getting started, all you really need is a set of needles, yarn, and this site.
