About Judy Hardman
Judy Hardman has been knitting for over 50 years. She kept Shetland sheep so she has been using her own yarn in two strand Shetland knitwear designs. Using both the natural colours of the fleece and yarn dyed with plants and acid dyes she hand knits garments and accessories. As a maths teacher the calculations required for pattern repeats and garment structure are no problem. As a gardener and an avid walker, growing and collecting plants leads to many dye experiments.
