You Know it's Fall When Even Your Mug Wears a Jacket

It is with a certain amount of apprehension I'm busily preparing for my first swap- the Knit 1 Tea 2 Secret Swap. I've done lots of research on how to be a good swap pal (mostly by stalking the swap pal forum on ravelry). Part of the swap involves a 'tea related' knitted object. I've stalked my secret pal, and know that she prefers mugs. So, the mug jacket: The gratuitous use of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies is just to give it some context.

I used the great pattern from MK Carroll, which can be found here. And here is a blurry close up of the pattern (sorry, i was feeling too lazy to have another mug jacket photo shoot!)

That is a NICE idea, already I am wondering if I can custom fit to my mugs that are a bit smaller. Also, it reminds me I need a tea cozy. (The cookies look awesome, too :D )
