Knitting?

I've recently realised how much I need to improve on my 'crafty' skills. I love being creative, and have decided that it's high time that I learn some new skills. Plus this should help with my health by keeping me busy, whilst creating something. So this is where you guys come in. I know there's lots of crafty folks on my flist, so some of you MUST be able to help. Pretty please?

First off, I want to relearn to knit. The passage of time has meant that I've completly forgotten even the basics that my mum taught me. Any clues as to any good websites or sources for info, preferably as easy to follow as possible, as i'm a bit dim at the moment? I want to start off by knitting some big chunky scarfs, out of the likes of collinete. I don't know even how to pick what needles to use! We're talking basic starter here.

I'd also love to learn how to make felt, for the purposes of making some artwork. Anyone know how best to learn this?

Ideally I'm looking at things i can learn online, as evening classes are no go at the moment.

Anyone?
