Please help

I am looking for a copy of Unusual Toys for you to Knit and Enjoy by Jess Hutchison. I original saw a review of this book in Knitty a couple of years ago and I always meant to buy it, but being the procrastinator I am, I never did. I remembered it about two months ago and I discovered that Jess Hutchison decided not to print any more copies. Since then, I have been looking all over the place for a copy with no luck. The worst part is that the more I look for the book, the more I want it.

Here's my plea- If you have a copy or know someone who does, I will buy it from you or do a trade. Alternately, if you can convince Jess to start selling them again so I can get a copy I will love you forever!!

someone needs to start bootlegging them. i mean, if they don't profit from it should be ok.

but i'm a filthy punk who wants to knit toys.

I say take the middle ground: email her directly and ask (1) why she's not printing more [couldn't find that info on her blog] and (2) if it would be alright with her if you copied one. There are a bunch of bloggers out there with copies (google) and I'm sure one of them would help a knitter in need. *psst* then _you_ can copy it for _us_. ;);)

I agree with Des! This book needs to be out there again in one way or another! !

Yea, I've been interested in a copy as well. I'd say contact her and see what can be done. It seems like too good of a book to have to be self-published.

I would love to have a copy if any one can get a copy. I tried to email her never got a response.

I searched on Ravelry and found that Jess gave certain ppl permission to print the booklet and distribute.
