My library doesn't have much in the way of books and the only book store in town barely carries 10 knitting books, so I get most of my patterns from the internet - mostly through Ravelry.

And I am Totally jealous that you have Custom Knits! I just adore Wendy Bernard. I don't thing I've ever seen anything she's designed that I didn't like. Next time I make it up the road to B&N, I am totally buying it. And when you run out of patterns from her book, check out the ones she has on her blog.

I use all of the above ... but chose books ... because I can't resist a new knitting book so I pretend that I "use" every one of them for patterns. But, most of them are for pure pleasure reading

Yes, I would have said "most of the above" except they do not have to be free for me. But I do get my patterns from many sources.

I love the free patterns, and I have a few books too. But forget Barnes - goodness, talk about expensive! Even paperbacks. Good Lord!

I'm planning on getting one of those books that show nothing but different stitches, so I can eventually just create my own projects.
until you

All of the above...I do go the library and check out a book to see if I want to purchase it. And when I decide to purchase, I tend to go through Amazon. But I sure do love free patterns!

I'm a Barnes & Noble cardholder, so the book was 20% off, which is still more expensive that you can get it from Amazon and KnitPicks has it for $16.50 right now.

As far as patterns for me goes, this is my first book. I've been captivated by, and I love looking at Ravelry. I need to get to knitting, I have more projects lined up than I can finish this year!
