Jo Shaw of Hardybarn Designs has a Level 3 City and Guilds in Hand Knit Textiles and works at A Good Yarn, Cleethorpes, as well as tutoring at knitting workshops. Textiles are in Jo’s genes. Many generations of Jo’s family have been in England’s textile trade, including Jo’s father, who was a successful Nottingham lace designer. Patterns are beautiful colorwork and textures. They are available through links to Ravelry, Payhip, LoveCrafts and Etsy, marked with R, P, L and E buttons. A couple of decor patterns are clearly marked as going to Ravelry.https://hardybarn.co.uk
