Thanks for visiting KITR Knits! I'm Janice Kwan, owner and creator of KITR Knits! I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and now live just outside of Boston, Massachusetts with my husband, 3 kids, and puppy.
My mom taught me how to knit when I was about 10. I never got much further than a simple scarf and eventually let go of the hobby. Years later, on a whim I decided to pick up my needles again and have since found it to be a gratifying stress reliever. I love the process of creating each knit piece. One day as I was knitting yet another hat, my daughter suggested that I sell them. And so began the idea of KITR Knits.
My style and personality are reflected in my knits. I love using vibrant colors and interesting textures, inspired mostly from art, travel, and nature. I have always loved wearing colorful hats and scarves -especially paired with an otherwise simple outfit. Coincidentally, I also found that I preferred to knit using circular needles (knitting in the round = kitr). My knits are meant to provide a vehicle for you to play with color in your wardrobe and transform your outfit. I hope you use your KITR knits pieces as a way to express yourself and lift your mood on a dreary day!
