The world's most awesome mug!

Mum and I both got one of these mugs from Matt & Sophia. Aren't they the sweetest. It saves a lot of time and energy. Instead of trying to explain that you are in the middle of a difficult pattern or counting rows you can simply lift your mug and the intruder gets the hint. LOL
If you would like you own here's the link.
This picture is a bit of a twofer. One, it shows off my uber-awesome mug. Two, it shows my newest project. I'm on a crochet kick right now after taking the Jacquard (tapestry) crochet class last weekend.

When I finished my thummed cowl (picture below), I had yarn left over so I'm tackling another of Danielle Kassner's Patterns. A pair of fingerless mitts called Veritas, Equatas (rav-link). After working on the cowl where I was balancing 2 strands of yarn and pencil roving, this glove is almost easy. LOL Also I've been able to use up some left over fingering from a couple old projects.

I'm very happy with the way my cowl turned out. It's really warm as well, perfect since the temperature here has taken a nasty downwards turn again.
