I'm interested in knitting toys now and I know there are many books out there, but for some reason I really want to find an older out of print out that I'll know it when I see the cover :teehee:

I don't ask for much eh?!?

Does anyone know what I'M talking about??????????

I'm pretty sure it was white background with a few knitted (perhaps also crochet) toys in front. I want to say it was a well known publisher, like Woman's Day or something, but I'm not sure if I'm just imagining it.

Well, IMO for something you'd use over and over it's not that bad. I'd get a lot of enjoyment out of just looking at it. I've never done eBay.
