Artlady knows all about DRY RUNS!
I once knit five sleeves to get two that were to my liking! I knit two collars to get one. It was for the Sylvie hooded coat. Then when it was all seamed and done, I took it apart cuz it's so heavy it needs lining. Come to find out, raglan style construction offer little support at the shoulders. The pattern stitch offered no support. The whole coat stretched south. My sleeves became mountain gorilla length. Today, my beautiful Sylvie coat sits in neatly folded pieces, covered by the lining yardage I purchased,vwaiting for me to have the courage to line the upper body by quilting the chiffon to the yoke area, re-seam all, and knit up yet collar or hood. BAH! It's been waiting for three years.

This is a true UFO.
