a christmas wish from Luna Gallery

as 2015 comes to a close, we reflect on our year… it’s challenges, those who left us, new beginnings & our approach for the year to come.

After a little downtime this year – moving showroom & warehouse, re-locating factories, buying new machinery – we never gave up & Knit On.

“I personally thank you so much for your loyalty, understanding & patience – in this most challenging period in our 15 years. Yet our local knit industry IS alive & well … against all odds … & Luna remains true & devoted to the cause thanks to you.
To my team, family, friends & amazing clients – I could not have done it without you”

Buon Natale & Warmest Wishes for 2016,
Bev & Georgie & Melanie

tropical vibes ~ fresh n’ fruity January 2nd, 2016

fresh and fruity knits - inspired by the tropics

WE love working with colour, & nothing inspires us more than the elements, the seasons & the harvests of nature.
Blending yarns ( to us ) is like blending a juice or creating a fruit salad. Combining colours, textures & flavours that work well together takes time, patience, imagination & ingenuity.

The brilliant colours & vibes of the Tropics inspired us to create fresh & fruity yarn palettes for our chunky moss summer knit blankets: melon, papaya, lemon, lime & mango … mixed with a few classic & cool shades of summer.

Fresh & fruity knits – a tropical inspiration.

the sounds of summer December 22nd, 2015

the sounds of summer grasses

The Summer Solstice brings a summer breeze & the sounds of rustling grasses – bunny tails, dandelions, wallaby & native love grass.
Not all are lovely nor acceptable – they bring sneezes, are considered weeds & are not great livestock fodder – but never the less when they bloom they evoke our childhood memories.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

Seals And Crofts – Summer Breeze Lyrics | MetroLyrics BUT my favourite version is by STYLUS with sublime vocals by Peter Cupples.

Luna Gallery @ Big Design Market Melbourne

Knitted, kitted & ready to Go – The Big Design market is an amazing shopping experience in December in Melbourne, with independent design alive.
For we designers who have no shop – this is a great arena to show our entire range, meet our market & escape our dungeons.
For those WITH a shop, it is a brilliant forum to promote ones brand & retail presence.
… and for the guests & shoppers … what a treat … independent design, great food & beverage … curated with atmosphere & style.
Thank you @bigdesignmarket for creating such an amazing event.

Flea bitten grey & dapple furry friends

‘Gorgeous’ was the name of my horse – an unusual name for a chunky, barrel racing, son of a wild brumby! But he was just that – gorgeous by nature & temperament – and he came when I whistled … BONUS.
Furry friends are such great companions – teaching us to care for others, be kind – and be loved in return.

wild horses & shaggy mountain ponies November 2nd, 2015

mountain ponies for texture & yarn inspiration

we love the freedom of wild horses – energetic & speedy – elegant & unpredictable.
Travelling in a herd, they provide social interaction, grooming, warmth & companionship to one another – opting to ‘take flight’ rather than fight.
Along with their beautiful hair & handsome manes & tails – we love their natural & nurturing herding instincts.
