(Want to know what a Chibi looks like? http://www.yarn-store.com/tapestry-needles.html )
She had to go in for an EKG strip. I was musing about going to a local shop to pick up a Chibi, when she came out of the lab with a big grin on her face. She then hands me two test tubes! These are brand new, unused test tubes... So, here's your Chibi, she said. I think this is a cool idea. I am calling it a "faux chibi", and was chatting with her about it, and then Mom mentioned that I would need to take the fingerprints off the tube, so tape would stick. I blurted out, "CSI: Chibi!" And it stuck.
(Had to make it all technical looking, now, didn't I???)
I know a lot of knitters want a particular color of Chibi, (for some reason, pink is popular in this area, and I don't care for pink), but I have seen lots of different needle cases, but I think this one is maybe rather unique!
Funny thing, in the "learn something new every day" department, "chibi" is also involved with Japanese Manga. Let's just say, I wasn't expecting little cartoons when I looked up chibi...
