Ew, what was I thinking?

I was going into my cedar chest today. It holds sweaters that I am not using. Imagine my shock and horror when I pulled this out. What was I thinking when I made this. Where did the pattern come from? Where did this ugly yarn come from? I was living in Los Angeles at the time that I made this. I can't for the life of me imagine where I would have gotten this pattern or yarn. Ew. Scary part is that there is a whole chest of shame. Not just outdated but really really ugly sweaters. Maybe my mind was taken over by aliens. Maybe it was that I had just gotten divorced. Who knows. Just thought I would share so that I could make others feel better about themselves.
