Hi and Welcome to the board!
A wonderful site full of helpful videos is www.knittinghelp.com.
Hi .. I'm new to this particular board, too! And, not new to knitting;)You might try looking at Joann Fabrics Store(local or online) or local craft store. There are some cd's that you can learn to knit/crochet. Sorry I don't know the name offhand. Another place to look online is www.patternworks.com They have computer programs too for learning to knit/crochet.
Have fun knitting!Karen

I would agree, size 8 needles, 14" Long (they are pretty standard length I think) and worsted weight yarn would be a great place to start.
You're welcome;) .. Happy Knitting! You'll get some great ideas there .. another place for ideas is http://www.craftsitedirectory.com/knittingsupplies/and http://www.lionbrandyarn.com/
What beautiful little girls you have .. I think it's great that you homeschool!
