"My name is Rachel Roden and I am an avid knitter and knitwear designer. I first learned to knit when I was a kid, but I didn't pick it up seriously until a few years ago. After graduating from college I began a career as a traveling archaeologist. Because I was spending a lot of time as a passenger while commuting to and from job sites, knitting turned into the perfect way to help pass the time! I am no longer doing archaeology as a career, but I developed a love for the outdoors and hiking that has stuck with me. Now I spend my days purchasing yarn for Jimmy Beans Wool which is the perfect job to feed my passion for yarn and knitting! I started designing patterns simply because I couldn't find patterns for exactly what I wanted to make. This developed into the perfect creative outlet for me and I find design inspiration in all the natural beauty in northern Nevada, where I now call home.
Since Marco is a skier, I was inspired by ski tracks in the snow. That's how I came up with the woven trails stitch pattern, to represent those curves and swirls!"
