It's a book by Debbie Stoller....Official name is Stitch 'N Bitch and you can purchase it online through Barnes and Noble or Amazon and most book stores carry the book. It's a very good reference book when you're just beginning.
I think the videos on KNITTINGHELP.COM will help you more than anything else...just start from the "Getting Started" tab above, then go through the basic technique videos...IMO-continental knitting is the way to go for ease of learning, but again, that is personal preference...the continental videos are the ones with the pink icons.
I started knitting in November, 2004...was shown how to do only the knit stitch and purchased the SNB book...I didn't find this site until January and have found it to be like having a teacher online...and without feeling the pressure of a "class"
There are some great knitters on this forum and they're always willing to help. Just remember...do not get too frustrated...it takes lots of practice and there's always something to learn or ways to improve your technique once you do get the hang of it...soon, you will find yourself :XX:
