There are SO MANY great knitting books for beginners.

You might like the "Knit Fix" book, which shows how to fix common knitting mistakes. It really helps.

I second the "Knit Fix" book. I would also recommend a stitch dictionary the Harmony Guides are reasonably priced, there are also Vogues Stitchionary, "Mary Thomas' Book of Knitting Patterns" (old with black and white pictures, but still a rather streamline book of information) and the Barbara Walker's dictionaries (which are classics). Some folks also like Elizabeth Zimmermann's "Knitting Without Tears," I like Jacqueline Fee's "The Sweater Workshop" you can go throught the knitting basics on a swatchy bag thing so you are comfortable and familiar with the techniques that will be used in sweater making and she gives you basic styles of sweaters to make. HTH.
