Knitting needles for kiddo

My friend Amy de-stashed and set aside some pink and purple yarn for kiddo.  I think she likes it.  Of course, she wanted to start knitting with it right away.  With my needles.  Apparently, I am somewhat possessive about my needles.  Who knew?
This afternoon we made her her very own set of needles out of chopsticks she found in her room.  Why does she have chopsticks in her room?  
First, she painted them with watercolors to stain them.  She went with purple/pink/orange.  A few hours later and they were dry.
Then, we used a pencil sharpener to sharpen the points.  We probably should have done that first.  
Next step was to rub them down with a itty bitty piece of glycerin soap that has been hanging out in the shower.  After that she rubbed them down with a washcloth.  They are smooth.
Last step was to glue on these little blue koala pencil toppers that came in her Christmas stocking.
I think they look cool.  My needle sizer says they are perfect size 8s.  Now, to transfer her scarf off my needles and on to hers!
