Yes!  It's a neon green cardigan!!!  The very color presented here.  The knit is really chunky with fat yarn - sorry I don't know the specs.  The cut is square, with long, chunky sleeves.  Goes down to my waist - not close fitting at all.  There are some chunky knit buttons as well.  All told, it's about 20"x36", plus the sleeves.
So yeah, any suggestions?  I already have plenty of legwarmers and purses - my original ideas for it.

I love me some microfiche and felty things.

Do you think it's wool? Have you washed it in the machine before?

err, a cushion?

if you like the cardigan but not the colour, you could dye it.

you could unravel it and knit something else.

I believe I have the exact same sweater.   I chopped mine up and managed to get a (semishort) skirt AND a beret out of it.  I bet I'm the only girl in the world with a hairy green outfit.

Are you a knitter? here's a thread with a link to a tutorial on how to unravel a sweater to recycle the yarn.

You can mail it to me. I am in Texas so it is about 100000000000 degrees out side. And in the "winter" sometimes it will get down to 30 but it stays at about 50 or 60. But if I had a sweater like that I would wear it anyways. hehe...

I agree, I would wear the sweater. Then the cool kids would want to hang out with you.  Wink

It sounds fabuous, actually. I'd probably wear it, with some cute appliques Cheesy A beret sounds cool. I can believe that a hairy green outfit is most covetable.
