About this Cruise

This is Not Your Typical Cruise

Guests of The the Grocery Girls will enjoy knitting classes; expert lectures; extensive interaction with our speakers; social events; dining with like minded fellow cruisers as well as guest speakers; and a wonderful sense of sharing and camaraderie. We will be exploring stunning Alaska, and attending 3 amazing knitting workshops while we’re at sea. Spend free time knitting and hanging out together, or just chilling out solo for some relaxing me time. Either way, Tracie and Jodi can’t wait to meet you!

Design your own Drop Shoulder Cardigan with Joji Locatelli
Are you ready to unleash your creativity and design your own drop shoulder cardigan?

Strange Brew: Design your own colourwork yoke sweater with Tin Can Knits
