The Handknitter's Yarn Guide: A Visual Reference to Yarns and Fibers by Nikki Gabriel, 176 pages, read by Kira, on 11/14/2012

There is so much for knitters to know about yarn.  And this book is a good place to start – actually I’ve been knitting for about 3-4 years and still learned a lot.  Each page presents several swatches of a yarn and how it knits up – including how it knits up in different basic patterns (eg. garter versus stockinette).

Note they do NOT review by yarn manufacturer, only by gauge (or weight).
