Knitting Books

I am new to knitting and new here. My name is Dalia Salem. I am hoping to learn and benefit from all of you.

I wanted to get a knitting book to help me along and I was wondering if you have any suggestions?

Some good ones are Debbie Stoller's Stitch and B*tch (funny and hip but may offend some conservative knitters) and Knitting for Dummies (not flashy but lots of useful info). If you want a small, basic techniques book, look for Vicki Square's Knitting Companion. There's lot of free help on the web like in the site below:

Thanks a lot. I'll check them out.

I was also searching the web and I came across the following site:

Some of the programs offer free online courses. I signed up for a few. Hopefully they'll be beneficial. Does anyone have any experience with these programs?
