As a child, I was slightly obsessed with Nintendo Duck Hunt. It was fantastic.

Years later, I used my new obsession, knitting, to relive my Dunt Hunt days.

Here's the results, enjoy!!

Notes:
-sweater took just over a month of off and on knitting
-used old sweater pattern, drew up charts myself (minus the dog, which I found online)
-first time knitting with colour - intarsia AND stranded! wooo!

CHARTS!!!

Unfreakinbelievable!
Your sweater ROCKS and so do YOU!

This bring back great memories of my cousin and me playing Duck Hunt in my mother's livingroom.  She had a mirror hung above the chesterfield and when you looked in the mirror you could see the TV. We would point the orange and grey gun at the mirror and shoot at the ducks. It was a-w-e-s-o-m-e!  Cheesy
