This was 2004 and the yarn pattern was from the Winter 2002/2003 issue of VK.
Since then, I have moved from Hong Kong to Vancouver, Vancouver to Toronto and Toronto back to Vancouver. The sweater was never sewn up, the dangling pieces just stored in a plastic bag, hidden in boxes throughout those moves.
The pieces were also chunky and lacy and I was afraid to sew up the pieces...
...Until now.... This morning I was perusing the new Anthropologie Catalogue and saw this for $328:
It is the EXACT sweater that I was knitting back in 2004. It's amazing that almost a decade later, this sweater makes a re-appearance and is as relevant as ever. And my love with this sweater hasn't changed.
Although my sweater is still in pieces, I am going to find them and sew them together right away!
