November 2019 - MALIA MAE JOSEPH

November 01, 2019

It is November Designer of the Month time, and my staff has convinced me that I should have a go!

I'm Malia, I'm the founder and co-owner of Stephen and Penelope, and when I grow up I want to be a designer.

Sometimes I piece together the time to work on designs, and actually write them down, have them knit and photographed. Mostly ideas and sketches just sit in one of my sketchbooks for ages! One day, when life slows down, I will focus more on this creative part of my life!

Many of my recent designs were created with West Wool, a yarn whose palette I helped to design as well, so that has been a very special process for me.

This month you can visit the Brackish Jumper, Brackish Hat, and Trixie Shawl in the shop, all knit in West Wool of course!
