Jeremy,
Thanks for taking the time to recommend what you think is best. I think by looking at them all and what some of you have said I will start with the Stitch & Bitch Book and keep the Knitter's Companion book in my knitting bag.
Thanks,
Susie

I started hand knitting (10/01/2005) and got my embroidery machine for Christmas 2005. I had 2 Bond Incredible Sweater Machines given to me in Feb. of 2007 that I'm really enjoying. http://susies1955.myphotoalbum.com/

I love the Idiot's Guide. I used it when the other resources I was looking at had crappy pictures and made no sense.

Anna,
Thanks for letting me know which you liked. Did you have the one with knitting and crocheting???? I don't know why I got that one but you never know I may get into that.

Stitch N Bitch!!!! That was the one I learned the most from. I also have the Book of Finishing Techniques, but I haven't really gotten into that one too much. I also find that in my "Family Circle Easy Knitting" magazine, there is a section in the back that illustrates basic knitting and I think the pictures are really good. If you're in a bookstore, try paging through one and see what you think. The patterns are usually pretty good too!

JLC,
Thanks for letting me know what you think about Stitch & B*tch.
I had never thought about a magazine so the one you suggested is a good place to start.
Thanks,
Susie
