If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The mug cozy is on my to-do list.  It's stunning!  Thank you for sharing the pattern.

Btw, I knitted your sushi toilet paper cozy!  I love it.  It's going to be a door prize at a family reunion.  I'm sure people will be fighting over it!
Huh? Where is this? I must see...

Glad you all are enjoying the pattern! 

Lovely! And your pictures are so professional looking, how do you do that Huh
If you saw my photo studio setup, you probably wouldn't believe me.  It's a folding table with a cardboard lightbox*, tripod, two clamping work lights (from the hardware store), and an old bedsheet.  Oh yes, and the digital camera I got for $50 because sometimes the screen goes all funny and you have to smack the camera to get it to work again.  I took photography classes when I was in art school, and use very little of what I learned in those classes when taking photos of my projects.

Alicia Paulson had a recent post on her blog (as in, yesterday) that turned me on to eBay Photos That Sell, a book by Dan Gookin and Robert Birnbach that gives good basic info without a lot of fancy tech talk.  What Alicia demo'd in her blog post sold me.  You can find used copies for a pretty low price, too.

*instructions for a $10 DIY Macro Studio available at Strobist - please note that there is a LOT of great info and tutes on the site, spend a little time poking around!  There are other tutes and variations on how to make your own lightbox out there; I got the tip about the old bedsheet (drape over box and camera to get soft, filtered light while using bright, bright work lights) from a different tute.

That tp cozy has been a popular gift item for me too!  The crochet and crochet + knit versions I designed is available free through Crochet me, and I have other free knit and crochet patterns on my blog (left sidebar, you may have to scroll down a bit).  A lot of them have been posted to Craftster (like the knit sushi tp cozy); I'm not sure how you'd find them here - maybe through my profile?

I definitely second all the coolness remarks...too bad I don't knit.
