Need 1 skein of a discontinued color
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.

I do not have any but several people have it on Ravelry and at least one of them has it for sale so you could contact them.

Good idea, yarnrainbow! and of course, I'd add that it's not kosher to approach people about buying their yarn if it isn't specfically in their FOR SALE or TRADE folder.

Raverly software is getting better at posting a little note by people's yarn stash about NOT FOR SALE or FOR SALE.

It's best to respect the knitter who owns the yarn. People can be very prickly these days.

The thing that irks me A LITTLE is when people message me about "will you sell me only 5 of them? I only need 5 for my project" when I've listed 12 for sale....a sweater's worth.


So I respond "if I sell you five only...I'll be in your predicament...not enough yarn to finish my project...if the yarn doesn't sell, I'll knit a sweater with it..."

Anyway, just sayin....

Good luck with your search! I've been in your shoes!

Good point, Dollyce.

My motto is to always buy one extra skein than I think I'll need. I make charity hats or other small projects with my leftover stash.
