All the time I have been spending on Craftster for 2 years and not stumbling across this post ? OMG ! Thanks for posting. I'm copying the pics to read the whole story. I'm just wondering if those guys are still knitting. It could be interesting to post a message on the german knitters' group on Ravelry, couldn't it ?
Edit for adding this :
I loooooove the vertical fair isle sweater !
