Snowden Becker

Howdy! I’m an archivist and film preservation professor living in Los Angeles. When I began my doctoral studies at the University of Texas back in 2006, I discovered Austin’s amazing yarn shops and thriving local craft community. I was also lucky enough to fall in with a crowd of inspired (and inspiring) knitters who encouraged me to build my skills and share my designs. I hope you enjoy making and wearing these knitted projects as much as I do!

I’m always happy to help with pattern support, questions about sizing and yarn substitutions, etc. via Ravmail or email (TT820.B43@gmail.com), so feel free to get in touch.

I also am always happy to support the LYS community…since the LYSes in Austin, especially, have been such a big part of my life as a knitter over the last few years. Shop owners, I hope you will feel free to use finished garments for store samples, or to offer workshops or classes based on my designs (please just make sure those taking the class purchase their own copies of the patterns!). If you have a customer who “doesn’t do the online”, but wants one of my patterns, just let me know and we’ll work something out there, too.
