I'm a newbie knitter and I'm learning with SnB, and it's ace, I really recommend it.  It's very clear and easy to learn from, but the only problem is that I think there are certain things you just can't learn from a book, and that you need to watch being done and see how it works in practice.  If I can't quite work something out from the diagrams in SnB, I go on to knittinghelp.com and watch the videos, and they're great help too.  That websitem, combined with SnB, is a ghreat way to learn I'm finding Smiley

The SnB books are great for new knitters.  I'm pretty intimidated by patterns in general still, and I've found that I also love Speed Knitting by Kris Perceval as a good newer knitting book.  It walks you easily through the patterns, and they go quickly so you feel accomplished.  *grin*

The Mason Dixon Books were easier for me to learn by. Huh
