Lou studied Archaeology at university and travelled in her early twenties, which included a road trip around the USA in a car called Horace.
Settling in East London for a time, she did an MA in Archaeology of London and worked for heritage organizations.
Knitting came to Lou early in her life when her Granny Lil taught her how to knit and purl. Now based in Somerset, she is mum to two growing girls.
Granny Lil’s lessons never left Lou, and she loves knitting little projects with her eldest daughter, and dreams of bigger projects of her own.
