Okay, I, ahem, forgot to remove the Ikea pencil from my shirt pocket last month when I was picking up a few items. Sure, I had a “better” pencil in my pocket also and didn’t need that Ikea pencil. But my daughter was fascinated by it, and it was good to grip with a squirmy toddler and holiday crowds. I came across a Flickr group today featuring “stolen” Ikea pencils, including one fitted with a ferrule — and is that a Faber-Castell “perfect pencil” cap on there?
