Last week I wrote:
I'm desperate. Making a Christmas project with a discontinued yarn and I am 1 skein short. THe yarn is Plymouth Encore English Plum (color # 9621). Can you please search your stash and let me know if you have some? Thanks in advance.

Someone responded that she would check their stash when she got home because she thought she had a skein. The option of finding one at Ravelry didn't pan out. Would that person please let me know if you found a skein? Thanks so much.

Did you try eBay? There are 204 listings for Plymouth Encore. I didn't have time to look through them all, but you might find your color there.

What is it you're making? Any chance you can just use a contrasting color for the rest? I've seen other people just use another color for the end of a scarf or edge of a sweater, top of a hat, etc.

There's been a lot of views so I'm guessing no one has it including me.

It looks like Yarn Boutique has a few in stock. I have never ordered from them, so I don't know anything about them.

Have you tried contacting the manufacturing company? They sometimes have the odd few balls.
