Join us in the store for 4 Saturdays in October to knit the Marie Shawl in conjunction with Melissa Leapman's event online on Ravelry. We will be providing our own kit selections, support, and the free pattern. Cost for the KAL is just the yarn purchase. The online event created by Melissa Leapman is free as well to join in on. Attendance for the store KAL is limited.
Knitted out of the softest chunky alpaca imaginable from Juniper Moon Farm, the Marie Shawl by Melissa Leapman offers a fun and easy way to play with color. Believe it or not, this beauty uses just one color per row (yes!!!) to create garter stripes, a cool mosaic pattern, and interesting colorful lace.
Dates for the Knitalong are:
October 2: The knitalong begins and Part 1 is released
October 9: Part 2 is released
October 16: Part 3 is released
October 23: Part 4 is released
We will gather at 4:00pm-6:00pm to begin here in the store each Saturday evening. Extended hours for shopping will be available in store. We will be open 9am-4pm for shopping on these days. We will transition from retail support to the event at 4pm promptly. Please plan accordingly if you need to purchase supplies before the event.
We are adding a generous complement of colors of Herriot Great to our selection of yarns in the store. The kits developed below may be customized, if desired, from our stock in the store. Please contact Josh directly to customize your kit, if needed. The store selection of some colors will not be readily available until the kits are mostly pre-sold. Herriot Great is a new to us yarn and will launch with this the KAL.
Otherwise, choose your desired color combination and check out. We will count you as registered when you purchase your kit.
Each kit contains:
Other supplies needed (not included in the kit)
In Garter Stitch, 11 stitches and 28 rows = 4”, blocked.

Masks optional for the vaccinated. Non-vaccinated individuals should wear masks. Our design area where we locate classes is large enough for individuals to social distance, if desired. Please make a honest effort to do a thorough self check for any symptoms and stay home if you have any doubts. This event is available online through Melissa's group as well. We are still offering free curbside and local delivery for compromised individuals and the homebound.
Events are held at our studio, Icon Fiber Arts, located in buds 'n bloom at 1876 Dickinson Rd, De Pere, WI 54115. We ask that participants park in the back of the building and use the rear entrance. Our gathering area is located immediately inside the back door. Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow yourself time to get situated. We will start with a short welcome and project overview promptly at 4:00pm. Please notify us prior to the event if you need any accommodations.
