Louie the (Hand Knit) Lovebot


Louie was supposed to become a cleaning robot, but the lab he was created in had a delay in programming him with his cleaning skills. Instead, Louie sat over a long three-day weekend and discovered a bunch of old black-and-white romantic movies and watched them for hours.  When the scientists came back to the lab to do Louie’s programming, his hard drive was so full of love stories that he was never able to be programmed correctly.  Now all Louie does is make a romantic love story out of every event.

Hand knit with love by a mama who also plants rice in the rice terraces (take a look at the P20 bill to see what they look like).

Each monster is packed in a paper bag with a tag and a note about each monster’s personality— ready for gifting!

Louie the Lovebot is available in two colors: 

  • Aqua with cherry red heart and accents
  • Dark grey with cherry red heart and accents
  • "Lulli" Light pink with red heart and accents
  • Mint blue with red heart and accents NEW

Lovebot is approximately 15 inches tall and 6 inches wide (without the arms).  Do remember that each hand knit Lovebot is unique and may slightly vary in size.

Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces.  Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families.  The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
