If you are in Sydney or Melbourne I know Morris & sons run workshops http://www.morrisandsons.com.au/catalog/in...p?cPath=28_1188
.. You could also try and join a knitting circle in your community but most of them run during the day on weekdays so might not work out for you... Google and there should be some options in your area or keep your eyes open in your local newspaper in the community announcements..
suitable starting projects... maybe a scarf? long and straight and you can knit it all in the same stitch
ETA If you in Sydney, I could show you, but then again I knit continental style and that might screw you over of you watch youtube videos later...
