Saturday July 16, I had the honour of meeting amazing women – who live & breathe their craft, their vision – their passion for provenance.
The event was held in Daylesford at the most beautiful home & studio of Natasha Morgan – a landscape artist & superb cook – in Spargo Creek.
Hosted by Lara @lovewalkeatsea who has the most enlightening “passion for provenance” & has been travelling around Australia championing local produce & provenance.
And the theme of the day – knitting – knitting with provenance.
The beautiful passion & persona of Megan Elizabeth dreamt up this vision of sharing her wool; a knitting experience, new patterns designed by Rhi Owens, local produce prepared & served throughout the afternoon by Natasha, with wonderful knitters from beginner to advanced sharing stories, sharing their passion for good wool, in a superb setting near Daylesford.
And with hand crafted wooden knitting needles by the talented wood turner Jesse Bree @jessebree, which we were humbled to take home, along with the handmade woolly flowers using SCOUT wool by Fleur Lyon @thefolkmaker – a botanical Fibre Artist – we were truly spoilt.
What an honour it was to be a part of this KNIT HEAVEN. I was invited along to bring some of our Luna Knit blankets to be on display … and to keep we knitters warm.
Thank you to all for such an amazing experience … and for being so inspiring & true to your cause. xx
This Winter we introduced our newest, warmest, BIGGEST knit jumper EVER.
Our Luna Gal Turtle neck is just the right length, turtle not too high with delicious long sleeves.
We are not always sure if our designs will sell well – but this style took off instore as soon as it landed – the re-orders were coming in fast.
So after 4 production runs in merino wool this season, we are now working on a new version for spring.
But until then … stay snug … buy wool … support Australian made knitwear.
