After six months of knitting I am finally finished and I'm so extremely pleased with he result. This is the first thing I've knitted that actually was worth it. I'm never knitting intarsia again though. (modifying: It's not intarsia. It's stranding. I'm just not very well aquainted with english knittingterms) Damn, it's time consuming. My first plan was to make the arms in the scull-pattern too, but that would have taken too much time and I would probably have given up.

sorry for the bad picture quality.

Attempt at taking a picture of the back:

Wow, I can only imagine how time consuming that was.  And I don't even knit.  But it looks awesome!

Love it.  What pattern is that?  My 13 year old daughter would love this!
It looks great.  Intarsia is a pain, though.  I have a felted bag I am working on and it requires intarsia.  That thing is taking me so long to make, because I keep putting it down because of all that intarsia. 

Great job.  All the trouble was worth it and I like the contrasting sleeves.

Fantasic work! I hate instarsia too - I think I've only ever made one thing using it.
I really like the red trim around the outside.

Very cool print! Also, I think making the sleeves solid black was a good call

I only post compliments that I really and truly mean.

amazing! what size needles did you use?


In a perfect world we'd all sing in tune
But this is reality so give me some room
So join the struggle while you may
The Revolution is just a t-shirt away

This is AMAZING!  I'm totally jealous.  Did you make the skull pattern or find it somewheres? 
(Add me to the people who like that the sleeves are solid color, too)
