How great- spinning yarn with your little one! The picture is great and she will probably know how to spin yarn before she reads.

Some of these mohair yarns really look nice. I particularly like the pink and purple orchid mohair. I use mohair to felt hats and bags. It usually knits up nicely and felts great.

Love the hobo bag. It would be light to carry and looks like it would hold a lot.

The gray Salsa eyelash yarn would make a nice scarf or two. It would also pair nicely with a funky black or gray yarn. The price seems good for 2 skeins.

How can they call 1978 vintage when I was in my 30's then????
Actually the crochet patterns from the McCall's crochet and knitting pattern book would probably look familar to me. It might be interesting to see how styles come back into vogue.
