woohoo i finished mine last night.
(that's supposed to be a hot pink color, don't know why it turned out red-orange like)

BUT i need to do a lining.  my gauge was way off so i just worked two rows of the intarsia instead of three, and did three repeats instead of four.

and for a personal touch, i replaced one of the skulls w/ a heart

unfortunately though i made it with some crappy acrylic yarn i had, so it won't shrink (or will it?)
right now it's pretty damn big.

I LOVE this!  I've never done any colorwork, and I was a little burned out on knitting from another pattern that's been kicking my butt, but this is SO TOTALLY my next project. 

One quick note on the yarn, though -- I just read that DuPont is being sued over Teflon.  Supposedly, it contains chemicals that leach out over time and build up cumulatively in the human body.  The FDA is allegedly going to regulate its use in food packaging and cooking materials, and there's a HUGE class action lawsuit about its use in clothes and carpets.

So I'd be a little wary of using it on something that might touch bare skin over time, y'know?

I think I've got some other yarns that might work, though.  (Anybody using Brown Sheep's Naturespun for this?)

I finished this a while ago but I didn't have a digi cam till now. It's going to my friend sean who is the only person I know that can actually wear beanie type hats and look good. I'll try to get an action shot later.

Here's mine in Black and Fuschia Microspun. I'm going to stick some little LED lights in some of the eyes before I line it, and try to rig up a little switch just inside the bottom hem of the hat. ...Because I'm insane, and stuff.

Has helloyarn.com disappeared?  I tried going to the site just now to see this pattern and others, but it wasn't working.  Huh

At least I've already downloaded the pattern.  I plan on starting this as soon as my damn yarn arrives in the mail.  I ordered some knitpicks palette last week or so and it's not here yet.  hmph
