Hehe... I'm thixle a completely made-up name. I was dubbed this in high school cause it sounded cute and tiny. It's also my "alien" name-- a few friends got together, decided we were from the planet "Voltarius" (our leader was Zoltar), etc, etc... Had a whole big-budget special effects story line to go along with it! And, well, I'm still thixle in email, chat rooms, message boards, everything... and I've never ran across another thixle!
These are the same as my "cat toys," but smaller, and ummm... with magnets! The egg roll is about 2 inches long. Visit http://www.geocities.com/thixle/main.html for patterns and instructions. Tell your friends!
