Knitting is not for homebodies and grannies anymore because it just got itself the ultimate advocate. Supermodel Daisy Lowe launched the opening of “Knit Nation,” an event to kick start Wool Week, wearing a chic combination of knitted pieces to the party.

The 24-year-old English fashion model showed that layering on the knits can still be stylish as she wore a wool jumper over a pair of super short leather shorts and wedge boots. She topped off her look with a black, knitted fringe scarf and a smoky eye makeup.

The gorgeous Lowe posed around the display window of John Lewis Oxford Street where colorful knitted products sat like tea cozies and spot rugs. According to the Campaign for Wool organization, there will be live knitting at the windows for the duration of Wool Week (Oct. 14 – 20) to show how the knitters transform the plain white displays into a wonderful “woolen wonderland.”
