Oh my gosh!  I love all of it so so much!  Where did you find this?  Do you have the patterns to go w/ them?  I want the knit elephant hood and the name sweaters!  How cool!

there's this great second-hand bookstore in potsdam where every book is 3 euros (it used to be 1 euro but nevermind).
of course there are also patterns (in german though); do you want the whole pattern (which i could try to translate) or just the templates?

btw i also love those name sweaters! and the little guys wearing them are such complete dorks  Wink

I know these! I have a series of crafting books that contain most of these images! And many, many more. Some of them are basics, some are just for getting motivated, and some are just for broadening the horizon (=screaming in style pain).
I found them in thrift stores and on flea markets. These books must have been very popular in Germany, because I see them everywhere where second hand books are sold.
@monalisa_lazysmile: Do you think there could be any copyright issues? I'd like to post from my collection of vintage craft books, but I always hesitate to post pictures I didn't take myself. So we post them abroad, but still, they're commercial photographs.
