As far as books go, since tastes vary so widely, one of your best bets might be to go to your local library and look at all the knitting books to see what appeals to you. Along the same lines, if you browse through knitting books on amazon.com and find something you like, but your library doesn't have it, you can interlibrary loan it. That way, you can decide if you really, really want the book before you purchase it.

Personally, I find The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns and The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns to be wonderful because you can use whatever yarn you like as well as be creative.
