If you have been to our brick and mortar location, you surely will have met Roswitha de Joode. She's our Store Manager, and absolutely the heart and soul of our customer experience in the shop.

Roswitha started at Stephen & Penelope more than 7 years ago in our tiny little shop on the Lange Leidsedwarsstraat as occasional fill-in help back when Malia ran the shop alone. It's fair to say that Roswitha has been a huge part of the successful growth of Stephen & Penelope. Recently we named one of our West Wool colourways after Roswitha's favorite colour - rose pink!

Known in the shop for her almost-encyclopedic knowledge of baby jumper and cardigan patterns, Roswitha is the mother of a 2-year old, and has made numerous baby knits for friends, family and colleagues throughout the years. Though she's a self-described slow knitter, she's still amassed a tidy little collection of hand knits and accessories and proves that slow and steady wins knitting too!
