I don't know anything about combined purling but I used Stitch n Bitch and I found it really clear and easy to understand.

OT - where is this automatic reply I read about? I actually had to TYPE out this post!!!! I want to sit back and let the system decide how to reply... POUT.
i picked up a "knit this" kit at target the other day (they were on sale for $3!!) and it ame with a DVD that was very good. It really helped me to *see* someone do it.

Also i got my dd a Klutz knotting book that is pretty clear. but also very basic.
Knitting in Plain English is really good. It doesn't have a lot of clear photographs, but the written instructions are very clear. I used it to learn. It covers everything from very basic to more advanced techniques, so it can take you a long way.
