Lucía Ruiz de Aguirre

My name is Lucía Ruiz de Aguirre, although many people know me by my Instagram Nickname, @luymou, and I live in A Coruña, a city in the north of Spain that faces the Atlantic.
In 2012 I started crocheting, thinking that handmade garments were going to become fashionable and the truth is that I was not wrong, but that happened 10 years later. Along the way I realized that teaching was what I had to do to survive and that’s how “Como molo” emerged, the first workshop store in Galicia dedicated to DIY and specialized in sewing and crochet.
In 2015 I learned how to knit,I became professional, took courses, learned pattern making and began to publish patterns, the first one, the ola shawl, is still knitted by many knitters today.

In 2018 I published my first book “Punto y parte” which meant a before and after in my professional career and after which many other titles have come that you can find on my website and in haberdasheries and yarn shops in Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom or Chile.
I have managed to reach specialized publications around the world with my designs, such as Koel, Laine Magazine or those of brands in the sector such as Casasol, Regia, Hedgehog Fibres, LITLG, Schachenmayr or Rowan. I have also participated as a trainer in international festivals such as Barcelona Knits Festival or Sevilla Teje.

In addition to my work as a designer, I work as an independent advisor to companies in the sector. To help them implement and consolidate products, or carry out a complete strategy from scratch, in companies in which, in addition to my help in the implementation and consolidation of the product, I have designed the color cards of their qualities and worked on creating designs. Likewise, I actively collaborate with different companies in marketing and communication tasks.

As you will see, the world of knitting has become not only my livelihood, but my way of life. Nowadays I wouldn’t understand a day without knitting or a house without yarn everywhere, I wouldn’t understand living without yarn skeins or talking all the time about patterns, shapes, finishes…
