Sincerely Louise

This weeks MOTW is Veronica with her fox called Ferdinand!

MOTW, what is it?

Every week we showcase a Maker of the Week (MOTW) across our Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Every month we choose four MOTW's and at the end of the month our followers vote on a favourite. The maker with the most votes wins a 'Make Your Own' knitting kit. 

How to enter

Simply share your finished SL knits with us on our social media. They can be projects knitted from our kits, patterns or book. Remember to @sincerelylouise and #sincerelylouise so we can see it!

We thought you'd like to get to know our latest Maker of the Month a little more. 

Name - Joanne Weston

Have you given your maker of the month knit a name? No

And where does it live? On top of the piano at the moment

How long have you been knitting for?  These have been my first knits!! I did the 20ft scarf(that everyone does!) when I was 10 or something and then did crochet when I was 20 odd.  Since going to my knit and natter group in Ripley I've converted to dabbling in the dark side ( knitting)

What was your first Sincerely Louise knitting project? The fox head

How many knitting projects have you currently got on the go? Do I have to answer this!! Officially (if my boyfriend asks) two. A lullaby bear for my friends charity and a kingfisher,,,, unofficially a scarf with cabling then, an elephant, a bag, a sheep and then just the crochet, which is 2 and a half birds, a dog, a baby blanket and a Christmas table runner which I might be ready for 3017!!!

Which Sincerely Louise kit have you chosen as your prize and why? The Bison - Boyfriend has said that my knits (if they are finished) can go on the wall and with the fox and deer, I think I've got a good theme and colour scheme going on

If you were an animal what would you be? I don't know - My sister says I run like a duck so maybe a giraffe (they look a bit weird when they run don't they!?). There tongues are cool when they eat too (would like to say my eating habits are much more refined!)

What’s your favourite 90s jam? Black box - Ride on time (Because my sister used to blast it out to wake me!!! Wicked child wicked!! (Love her really!)

If you were an octopus what 4 knitting projects would you knit at the same time?  Whatever charity project needed doing, a Louise Head (Obs) and crochet ducks (I could have a production line of body parts!!)

Who would win in a fight a t-rex or a unicorn? T-rex!!! Gotta say that for my class, they'd kill me otherwise!!

Would you rather all the wool in the world and never have time to knit with it or have lots of time to knit and only one ball of wool? OH I read it as a little time (come on just some!!) so defo all the wool in the world.  With a master plan to knit the world a happier place, yarn bombing anything/one that stays still too long and replacing all technology with knitted/ crocheted items - in fact not just technology anything!!!mwaaaahh
