In-Knit with Jan Rosé

I live in Oklahoma with my beloved husband and our two cats.  With two adventuresome grown children and their significant others to round out Team Rosé - life is sweet!  I discovered my aptitude and passion for knitting at an early age and took instantly to its beautiful rhythms and patterns.  I have been learning, designing and teaching knitting in various ways ever since. 

Life is a wonderful mix of faith, family, fiber, music, art, nature, good food, good friends and adventure that bring  inspiration and connection to my work.  I believe the things we love eventually begin to intersect infusing deep joy and beauty into everything we do.  Somewhere along the line, knitting became more than just a hobby.  This is the inspiration for In-Knit.  Knitting beautiful designs with quality fibers is art and a way of life.  Knitting is a slow art.  It's about spending time creating simple, natural things of great beauty by hand.  Knitting is tactile, rhythmic, meditative and relaxing and, much like music, soothes and heals.  The joy of knitting always emerges in the mutual fellowship of sharing our work and our life experiences and helping others - it links the generations and links the world.

Welcome to In-Knit.  As early-morning inspiration beckons me down the hallway to my studio, cup of coffee in hand, to sketch a new sweater idea, try a piano passage, text a loved one, or capture a new stitch pattern that's been brewing in my head – please join me. Sit down for a bit and let's be In-Knit together...
