I have a problem. I have completed 6 of the 9 strips needed for a MAM afghan (for X-Mas), but I have ran out of one of the colors needed for the afghan (lilac -Perfect Match -Caron yarns).
I have ordered another skein of the lilac from the company but when I received it, it was more like a perwinkle (with some blue in it).I have since tried to contact the company, but haven't received a response. What can I do to finish this project? Any ideas. I have looked on Caron's website to see if they have a cream or white available, but they don't (discontinued).

Thank you,

I would look at all the local craft sotres, Michael's, Joann's Hobby Lobby or whatever you have around. Or you could post in the looking for section with your dye lot and label name. Might not be a bad idea to try Ravelry too if you're on there.

Have you checked the stashes on Ravelry? I didn't see anyone wanting to trade or sell Lilac but I did see some cream.
