If you have a local yarn store, get a skein of some good quality but not super expensive worsted weight yarn (Patons Classic Wool is good and low-priced) in a light color so it's easier to see your stitches, and some size 8 or 9 needles. Wool is a lot easier on your hands than acrylic, I think. Also, yarn stores often have lessons. Other than that, youtube has good videos.

I taught myself by watching the videos on knittinghelp.com. Don't give up! It's really worth the learning curve frustration!
