My Secret Santa knows me pretty well.

But the last item is a bit more tricksy, as it is fleece which needs spinning into yarn before I can do something with it, and I don't spin, But I know someone who does and I have asked her to take a few pics as she goes so that you guys can see the process.

Hello limey~~~!!!

You. Are. Welcome!!!

I'm delighted you like the gifts. As for the tricksy one, those are mohair locks, dyed, of course. I showed a picture of several little gnome like, "tiny knitteds"

I believe were knitted by you. When she saw it she thought of the locks, suggesting they'd be perfect as hair. I can't imagine there's enough there to spin into enough yarn to make any thing ... waitaminit.. perhaps a tiny knitted?

Any damn how.

You do with it whatever the hell you want.

The shop was awesome. I felt like I was in the yarn equivalent of the wand proprietor's shop in the Harry Potter universe. Here are links and pictures:

OK ... sorry I'm late to the party, but I've been sick since Christmas eve. Really hit me the day after. Anyway lets get down to it. Our SS gifted us a TON of fun! Thank you so much. We started off with a nice card and then the gifts kept coming!
First up ... the assortment of fun including an ornament spinner (very cool), The Christmas Story movie, a few asst ornaments, bottle opener and the Grande Finale ... A nerf gun with a bunny target costume! I don't think Daniel quite knew what was coming once he put that costume on. Thank you again, ZippyT!

Ha! It was great. I love the bunny suit too. I was thinking of wearing it to the DSO show on NYE. They have a costume contest. I probably won't though, cuz it'd get ruined.
