Requiem for two sweaters

I’ve got a long weekend coming up, thanks to American Thanksgiving this Thursday. I’ll be enjoying a great meal on Thursday, as is traditional, and then I’m hoping to tackle a big item on my knitting to-do list:

These sweaters (Samantha on the left, Lena on the right) are both favorites of mine. Unfortunately, they’re favorites that are now too big, as I’ve lost a fair bit of weight since finishing them. They’re too nice to give up on though, so I’ve been meaning to frog them and reknit each in a smaller size. I’ve been wanting to do some refining of the Samantha pattern, so a reknit will provide the perfect opportunity for that also.

I hope all of you in the US have a lovely holiday weekend, and that everyone else reading has a nice rest of the regular week+weekend! I may post sometime over Thanksgiving, but if not, I’ll be back on Monday.
