Hi knitters---I gave my MIL some Cascade 220 superwash yarn I had from who knows where, and she needs more to finish her project. I looked on Ravelry and none up for sale, any sources for yarn from old lots? Thanks!

Maybe if you could be more specific about color, etc. Somebody might have some sitting in their stash. Never know.

I haven't been knitting very long, so I haven't developed a stash yet. Afraid I won't be much help.

OK it is cascade 200 superwash color 846 lt blue. I'm hoping to get lucky! I know there are groups that post their yarn for sale or wanted but not sure how to seek them out.

Also check EBay..this is a very common yarn so may show up

I have gotten yarn twice to finish a project by contacting someone via ravelry. If you need less than a skein, people would probably give it to you for the shipping price. The wonders of the internet never cease...

If she needs more, check eBay too.

Try doing a search; looks like a couple companies list that color. Of course it will likely be a different dye lot; not much you can do about that.

I'm also trying to match dye lot. I searched ravelry and also a number of on line vendors sell it.
