Rosann Fleischauer


Rosann started knitting when her husband got a boat and decided to take a few weeks and see the coast and she wandered into a local yarn shop during a much needed shore-break. She picked out a book, some yarn and needles to get started, and it turned the whole vacation around. Now ever year while he gets his boat ready for the season, Rosann scours the local yarn stores to build up a stash of projects to do underway, the smaller the better and always in the round with circular needles (because chasing double-pointed needles around the deck is not fun and provides twice as many ways to impale one’s self in heavy seas).

Rosann works with several community groups as a volunteer to teach others knitting techniques. She is always amazed at the number of fellow knitters she's met along the way and thankful to each and every one of them for the pleasure of their company and stories they have told. To this day, Rosann tracks her projects in terms of where she bought the yarn, who she was with and where she went while knitting it.
