Libby Jonson of Truly Myrtle
Libby is a knitting pattern designer living in beautiful New Zealand with her husband & four kids. She loves to design garments & accessories that are feminine without being fussy, flattering & easy to wear. As a mum, she understands that life is full of interruptions so her patterns are full of fun techniques that are simple to learn and they're written clearly so they're easy to follow.
When living in England, she rediscovered knitting after the birth of her fourth child. Now, she lives in rural New Zealand and knits every day, sews most of her own clothes, does a heap of cooking and makes things as much as she can.
Libby produces a wonderful podcast almost every week, and a mini-mag every month. If you haven’t read or heard them yet, then, as she suggests, make a cup, grab your knitting and join her. She loves to chat, and I’m sure you’ll soon feel like she’s your best friend come over for a visit! You can find out more about her at trulymyrtle.com
