Knitting- Why Did I Wait So Long To Learn How?

It has been a while since my last post. I wasn't feeling the best. But during my down time I did purchase Boye's I Taught Myself Knitting.  I couldn't believe how easy it was. For some reason I thought that knitting was difficult. I guess because of the two needles. I am a crocheter and was use to the hook. But within a few days I had learned to do a garter st, a stockinette st, and even a simple cable stitch. I kicking myself for not taking the plunge last year. Yesterday, I was browsing Knitpicks a now spinning has caught my eye. I will have to do some research. It seems interesting.

On the sewing front I am in the planning and gather stage for some fall garments. I am ready to get back to it.
Question: What are the best books for beginner knitters to have? Your suggestion will be appreciated.
