I like Knit Simple the Best. But I agree that Vogue Knitting is great. I did make a scarf from one of those once, but most things are beyond my skill level. Although they are fun to look at. I've also bought Creative Knitting (pretty good), Knit It! (great, similar to Knit Simple), Verena (European, more advanced), and Interweave Knits (I like this one alot). So I guess I don't have a favorite, but here are some ideas! Have fun in your search!
