This weight has been gained quickly. Last summer I weighed what my goal weight is now. I've been this heavy before and I was almost this heavy several times in the last five years, but this last six months I have gained back 30 pounds that I had lost the winter before. That means not only do none of my clothes fit but the sweater I was knitting for myself is the wrong size. I have a lovely sweater on the needles right now. I started it for myself last fall. I chose a size that would fit me then. I often have multiple projects started and this one got pushed aside for Christmas knitting, and then because my grand baby needed some warm, wooly thing. By the time I pulled it out again to work on it was obviously too small. I wondered if I should frog it or finish it and give it to someone smaller. But maybe I will finish it and it will fit me. I feel hopeful.

    I would finish it and if it doesn't fit there is always a person who needs it somewhere, donate it!

    Yes, finish it! If you aren't here to get back to a healthy weight (back into your sweater size) then, what? I think you will be glad you finished it for yourself.

    if you truly love the sweater and are going to loose the weight again, finish it, but if you know there is a good change you won't and love the yarn, rip it and re start it.

    We all go through this. I just finished a sweater according to directions and since it was a test knit , the sleeves are two inches to short for me. so now with all the work, going to add more ribbing to the cuffs
