This community is mainly for new knitters. Feel free to ask questions about basic stitches, casting on, binding off, etc. Post here to get opinions on easy patterns and get through your "firsts" with knitting. Go ahead and post pics of your projects but keep them behind an LJ cut. Also, please include a subject for your posts in order to allow members to more easily search previous posts for answers to questions.
This community is made up of BOTH beginning knitters and those who are more experienced. Once you get the basics, please share your knowledge with those just starting out!
Helpful sites for beginners (many have downloadable videos demonstrating stitches and techniques!):
