FO: Obama Hoodie
I wanted to show everyone my FIRST Intarsia project!!!!!!!

This project was inspired by both Laura Birek’s
Obama-rama chart and Maebajs’ “Yes We Did” (on Ravelry)
I wrote my own hoodie pattern and modified the chart to include “YES WE CAN”, rather than the word “HOPE”.

Pattern: Men's Hoodie, Size 44
Yarn: Herrschner's Worsted Wool

I have no words for how truly amazing your sweater is. It's gorgeous. No wonder your model is grinning like that.

When I read your description I was just expecting to see words on the sweater and when I saw that awesome picture I couldn't help but think "holy crap!" that's really good. I bet everywhere he goes people ask him where he got that sweater!
