dressed in a robert hall sweater acting like a soap opera queen yeah she's so dull come on rip her to shreds

Here's the thing about losing significant amounts of weight when you're a knitter/crocheter.

Suddenly you realize that most of the projects you've been working on? Yeah, they won't fit you anymore. So. The Prepster jacket, which is 95% complete?
Yeah, I kinda might as well rip that out. Orangina, about 5% complete?
Frog pile. Silk camisole, on which I have only to do the i-cord straps?
I have more. It's disheartening, actually.

It's good to know that you're finding time to knit - period. Hope to see you 2/5.

Congratulations on the weight adjustment!

If the yarn is too good to donate or discard, rip it and reknit. (It'll take less time now!) If the work put in is too much to waste, and there's a way to adjust the size by cutting and sewing (or even by deliberate shrinking), go for it. If you aren't in love with the yarn itself, and the item is not adjustable by any means, but you don't want to have wasted the work (and it's too big to call a swatch), consider who you might give the finished object to. Could you donate it somewhere?
