You can try YouTube videos, and guidebooks! There are some free guides written by bloggers online as well! I also learned mainly through online materials

Clearly OP doesn't need the advice anymore, but for those who might need it now: youtube is your friend. If you are able to follow videos in English there's a vast choice of video tutorials. If you're not confident enough with the English language, (keep in mind you can play youtube videos at a slower speed, just click on the little wheel in the lower right corner on the screen), try to search youtube anyway, I have seen videos in franch, spanish, russian, german, italian...there's plenty to choose from. If you're a visual learner, Garnstudio has a series of silent videos where you only see the instructor's hands moving, they're well done and detailed, but probably won't be the best for you if you need a verbal explanation, but they're fine to go beyond the language barrier. Other good youtube channels are Sheep and Stitch, Very Pink Knits, and, if you need to see how a specific stitch is made, New Stitch a Day is a fantastic resource, they have a youtube channel and a website, so you also have the options of written instructions. There's also one thing to keep in mind if you're not an English native speaker: US knitting and crochet terms somewhat differ from UK ones, same goes for needle/hook sizes, yarn weights and some stitch and pattern abbreviations. I would advise the beginner to keep that in mind when browsing knitting/crochet resources in English. If you google "Knitting conversion chart" you'll find plenty of information on such differences.

This is a curious question. I started as bought the needles by Ebay, metal and bambo options, then the yarn.

After I just see videos on youtube and start to practice the movements. I am newbie but I enjoy to imagine all the project I will create.

First step are the intention, then... Try.
