Mylea wins!

Last year, Whitney taught a class on the slip stitch jacket from Interweave Knits. Four people, including Whitney, started their sweaters. When only the back, and maybe a front, was complete after the class was over, everybody gave up. "Maybe this can be a pillow or something," they all said.

Except for Mylea. She finished her sweater. So, she wins.

Mylea's sweater is made out of Lamb's Pride Bulky and she left off the collar, and crocheted an edging instead (very Chanel, circa Jackie O!) I'm pretty sure this pattern is from the Fall 2004 Interweave Knits, but this issue is no longer linked on their website anymore, and from what little internet research I've conducted, this issue doesn't seem to exist anywhere. Maybe Knitting Daily will make this pattern available in their online store?
Not that it matters. Even if you wanted to make this sweater, Mylea already beat you to it.
