"Easter Bunny on a Bender" Wrap
When I first started knitting in February, a friend of mine had just made this crazy fun wrap out of Prism's Wild Stuff yarn for a family friend. I certainly couldn't afford that yarn, especially not a month into knitting But, I really liked all the funky crazy textures and since I love bright colors, I wanted something fun to wear on vacation.

I cast on somewhere around 300 stitches on size 17 circular needles and used about 11 different yarns (here are a few of them) I would knit a few rows in one yarn and then switch to whatever struck my fancy at the time, heh. It ended up being rather ginormous and you can probably see me from space when I wear it, but it did look cute with a black cami and black capris this summer on vacation Though I honestly don't know where I'll be able to wear it again, because it resembles what I would imagine the morning after a wild night with the Easter Bunny, the Lucky Charms Leprechaun and My Pretty Pony would look like.

I finally made my little sister model it over the weekend because I realized I have no pictures of me wearing it!

Here are a couple pics:

It's Huge!

And rather bright

With your lead-in I thought the thing was going to be hideous like clown barf or something. Do I dare to click the link?

But it is really pretty! I like it!!

It's beautiful! I was almost afraid to look, but it's really pretty! I love the colors. And it's not so huge, just roomy. Wear it proudly.
