August 2020

August 15, 2020

Madeline is our featured employee for August. She's been working at Stephen & Penelope for a little over a year and since she's still in school, she works one shift on the weekends, and occasionally picks up extra shifts during vacation. Madeline is our shop assistant and makes our stitch markers, notions sets and works on special projects like the Yarn A Long.

Madeline learned to knit from her grandmother, and while she's practised the craft off and on for years, it's only been in the last year and a half that she's finally picked it up as a regular hobby. Madeline and her family moved to Amsterdam 3 years ago from the US, so now that her grandmother is an ocean away, Madeline's mom Emily (the Systems manager here at Stephen & Penelope and our featured Employee in October last year) is on hand to help out with new techniques.

The gorgeous shawl that Madeline is modelling is her newly completed Rockpooling shawl by Helen Stewart (available on Ravelry and Etsy), which features a blue alpaca yarn spun by Madeline's grandmother. As well as knitting, Madeline practises several other crafts, including sewing, origami, painting and drawing.
