HOLY COW!!!

So I have been trying to find out what size "Bucilla AA" yarn was - it was sold in WW2 and is called for in a hat pattern I would like to make, but alas, the yarn is not produced any longer.

But I found this site which lists old yarns (no the yarn I'm lookin for isnt listed)

Discontinued Yarns:
"Columbia
Nomis
Tioga
1929 Fleisher Yarn Color Chart
Minerva
Columbia-Minerva"
but what IS listed is a bunch of yarn that I inherited from my mother -- dad says he has even more yarn waiting for me too. Especially the Minerva's ... I know I had some of that in her stash.

I have been working hard ... okay semi-hard ... to get my current stash logged onto my Ravelry site so get it a bit more undercontrol (so I don't have to have the HUGE list on the side of this blog) - but now I'm wondering if I'm going to be able to find the info for the yarn that I got from her.

Dad gave me at least 2 huge black garbage bags full (the kind you use for gathering leaves or garbage in the park) ...

she may have left a Gold Mine here -- okay a Fool's Gold mine
