Just in Time for Cozy

In 2002 I bought my first Sally Melville pattern book,
 Book 1: The Knit Stitch.
Book 2 : The Purl Stitch and Book 3 : Color  
followed in quick succession.

There were charming photos of Sally

wearing my preferred foot apparel at that time, so I knew I'd like her stuff.

 My first project was the Einstein Coat which saw me through many a chilly morning in my classroom. It was a hit with other staff. Would I knit one for them? Ha, ha, ha, ha . . . 

 Was this one of the first capelettes?

 Recently, I found Sally's blog and this yummy shoulder thingy.
Sally isn't too sure what to call it either, but it caught my eye.

So, since I didn't have stash yarn that met the required gauge,
 I deconstructed an unfinished sweater that had been lying dormant, 

 held the yarn double

and  . . .voila . . . L'Enveloppe is on its way. 
Just in time for cozy.
Thanks, Sally. You're great!

This is SUCH a pretty blog!
And thanks so much for all of this PLUS figuring out how to "get gauge!"
