Resources for Knitters

I saw an article from Reference & User Services Quarterly, New-Wave Knitting: Thirty-Eight Resources for a Core Collection. Don't let the library jargon throw you, it actually has some good suggestions for websites and books for new and experienced knitters. Most look like standards, such as Nicky Epstein, Sally Melville, and Vogue, but you might find some new websites or magazines.

Want to try out a book before buying so you know whether it'll be useful or not? Ask at your local library if it's available. Even if they don't have it on their shelves, they can probably request it from another library. (Sorry, couldn't resist the plug.)

Any other crafters out there, what are your favorite websites? Leave your recommendations in the comments.
