I'm ready. This is my inspiration:
We have this print in our front room. Someday I hope to visit this place. I love how all the buildings are numbered ~ here's a close up of the key:
My favorite is building 8 ~ 'Sisters Shop' ~ maybe a yarn shop for Kelli & I? I can always dream :)
I took a page from my sketchbook covered with colored pencil markings that matched this print to Churchmouse Yarns and Teas today and in a few months these yarns:

will be a lovely blanket for my husband (who patiently waited for an hour while I changed my mind again and again before settling on these colors).
Thanks to the awesome staff at CM who helped me wrap my head around how to estimate how much yarn I needed to upsize this pattern from a shawl to a large throw. Your patience and determination to not let me leave empty handed was very much appreciated!!
Phew ~ I don't remember ever putting so much planning into a knitalong before!
Ready to cast on? I am! And there is always room for more knitters if you'd like to join us ~ all the info can be found here. We'd love for you to knitalong!
