The book you find most invaluable on your bookshelf and would have to be prised from your fingers and never lent

I have never really bought books on knitting. I have a couple of old books from the 1980's on different knitting stitches as reference books.

Not a book... but Knitting Paradise is the ultimate place to
get help.

I have a library of knitting books but I usually find myself googling or youtubing or checking my bookmarks on KP.

I have The Principles of Knitting, and it's a great reference, but for most of the areas where I need help, it's YouTube, Google or KP to the rescue!

A book called "The Knitting Answer Book" that I bought at Costco when I was getting back into knitting. Not a great book but answers my questions. Mostly I do a search in U-tube.

Google.com is my very best knitting companion ever.

Vogue Knitting Book (not the same as the Dictionary of Stitches). I've had it since 1965 and other than info about new yarns, I've never looked up anything in it that I didn't find an answer. There are more updated answers sometimes that I see on KP, but there will be one answer there that will work.

Barbara Walker's 2nd treasury of knit stitches. I've found that with that 1 book I can figure out the rest. Happy knitting:)

I am newish to knitting have only done simple patterns like hat, scarf, baby booties and mittens and a baby blanket (I am going to be an auntie soon) but I absolutely love Knitty Gritty. It is a brilliant beginners guide, really talks you through the different stitches and finishing styles and making button holes etc. I have found it really useful and have so far managed to teach myself using it
