Same thing happened to a lot of us I think, Lisa. I have a whole bunch of yarn I wouldn't use for anything other than toys or something. However, the yarn links I gave her are GOOD yarns so if she gets stuff like that it'll help. Only problem is if you don't get enough then somewhere down the line you want to make a sweater and use stash and you won't have enough of one dye lot if you want it to be one color.
Getting a little bit now is okay, but don't go crazy.
