Willemijn joined our e-com team in May this year, but has recently moved over to Team Westknits where she now manages Stephen's project launches, communications and events. Willemijn was taught to knit by her mum when she was young, but thought it was too difficult, so she switched to crochet. In 2019, she fell back in love with knitting and hasn't been able to put it down since.

A committed lover of all things Scandinavian, Willemijn has lived in both Finland and Denmark, and has her sights set on Norway and Sweden next. She's also a huge Moomin enthusiast, and completed her Masters degree in Denmark.

In addition to working at Stephen & Penelope, she is a professional musician, songwriter and music teacher and is planning to release her first EP soon!

Willemijn is currently working on her Slipstravaganza and a Richter sweater, and in this photo she's wearing the Clotilde Sweater by Knitting for Olive which she knit from De Rerum Natura Cyrano.
