You can try the website Ravelry, some of the members sell their stashes.
Check Big Lots stores if you have any in your area. They are carrying some of the discontinued Chenille Thick and Quick for $1 a skein.
You might try looking for a competitor with a similar weight and gauge. People recommend Red Heart Sweet Home and the Bernat brand as possible substitutions.
I am looking for skeins of Lion Brand Chenille Thick & Quick Yarn in Wine 189 and Ruby Print 213. Can anyone help?
Keep checking back on eBay and Etsy as they do come up often.
The other thing is I saw a whole bunch of really good yarns at Ollies not long ago...if you have one of those type places--Ollies or Big Lots--they sometimes surprise you with what they have. Ours (in Pgh) always have top brands and really interesting selection...so you never know if they may turn up there.
I could kick myself for not getting on of the chunky yarns I saw there a few months ago...it would have been perfect for the green blanket I am making now...live and learn :)
Discontinued patterns are usually very difficult to find but sometimes people get lucky so a continuous search on eBay and Google may prove fruitful.
