To get the most out of these boards, before posting a topic, we suggest:

Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

The more information you can provide in your question, the better the responses.

We hope you enjoy the postings on this board and will come back to share your knowledge with others.

Are you looking for a "how-to" book? a book of stitch patterns? a book of garment patterns?

If you are looking for a beginner's book with some items to make as well, Leisure Arts publishes two that I like (and require for my classes). Either "10 - 20 - 30 Minutes to Learn to Knit" or "I Can't Believe I'm Knitting" will take you from rank beginner to the intermediate level for a very small investment. These books provide information rarely found in beginner books and are very well-illustrated. They are also available at most discount and craft stores.
