There is a very powerful quote from Obama’s speech after the New Hampshire primaries. It is…

“When we’ve faced down impossible odds: Been told that we’re not ready, or that we shouldn’t try, or that we can’t, generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people… YES WE CAN!!”

I’ve designed a scarf around this quote for the Inauguration of President-Elect Obama. It was for a swap and I’ve gotten feedback requesting the pattern. What I’m offering are the charts for no charge and I’m, instead, requesting that anyone who uses this design donate what they can, either time, goods or money to a community organization or charity of your choice. This is in the spirit in which we elected Barack Obama to be President of the United States and I’d like to think that I am sparking a vein of pay it forward goodwill toward our fellow humans.

I’ve been informed that the charts on my blog are not that great in their resolution, I went ahead and made some pdfs and if you need them, just pm me your email addy and I’ll send them to you.
