CMOT Dibbler Swap

Yes, over at the Ankh-Morpork Knitters' Guild on Ravelry, we held a CMOT Dibbler themed mini swap (and if you have no idea what I'm talking about, it's all related to Terry Pratchett's series of Discworld books, internationally beloved and snorted about).  My gift from my upstream:

Yes, you see it right:  rat-onna-stick and meat-inna-bun-onna-stick (cleverly disguised as two pairs of home-decorated size 7 knitting needles); meat-inna-bun stitch markers; and some finishing needles.
The funniest thing was that I joked to Jeffrey that there was no way Kayla would ever want to borrow the rat knitting needles; instead of the expected reaction, though, what we got from her was cooing over all of it with an insistence that I have to make a robe for one of the rats and turn it into The Grim Squeaker (aka The Death of Rats, another Discworld character).

Cool! Definitely make the robe - Fimo might work. As long as the needles aren't plastic, the bakable clays work at such low temperatures even wood won't be harmed.
