DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 12, 2015, 10:30 AM


  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    I've been on dA for almost 10 years now, I've had several accounts, but this is my newest and my now main account.

  2. What does your username mean?

    KnitLizzy is pretty self explanatory... My online name is Lizzy and I knit. My other account, LARvonCL however got a longer story behind the name. As a young teenager, I wanted a longer name that would work in several languages, so I translated my own and started adding more to it over the years. I ended up with LARvonCL, meaning Lizzy Ange Rickman von Crepsley Long, which has later become my online ID.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

    Creative, unique and shy.

  4. Are you left or right handed?

    Right handed.

  5. What was your first deviation?

    The first thing I submitted on this account was my black and green Lily fair-isle socks... While on my other account, my first deviation does no longer excist... The oldest one in my gallery however is my Alucard drawing in the Kojima Style.
    Black and green fair-isle Lilli socks by KnitLizzy Alucard Kojima style by LARvonCL

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

    Drawings and paintings, even though I hardly do any of those anymore. I've got problems concentrating and actually finishing up pictures that I'm working on, so I hardly submit anything anymore.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    Anything? That's a hard one... There's so much I want to do, but I would most of all be able to know everything and master goldsmithing or drawing/painting and become a pro. But a totally new and different art style... Hmm... Probably sewing. I would love to be able to sew anything, no matter how big or detailed it was.

  8. What was your first favourite?

    First favorite on this account was Archaical's Pink and Brown Knit Hood and PamelaKaye's David Gilmour drawing on my other account.
    pink and brown knit hood by Archaical David Gilmour--Pink Floyd by PamelaKaye

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    Yarn craft and drawings mostly... On my other account, I favorite a lot of metal works as well as tattoos.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    Gosh... There's so many artists that I've come to love over the years... But I will have to say Pickleweasel360 Do yourself a favour and check out her stunning corcheted creatures.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    I would love to meet my best buds Pickleweasel360 and Creativity-Squared as well as all of my other Live-Action-Crafters friends. I would also love to meet dearest Furiael some day :heart:

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

    What can I say? I've met my best friends through dA, people that have stayd with me through some really hard times, people that I can talk to regularly and that I miss every second we don't talk. When all of my IRL friends decided to backstab me and leave my life for unknown reasons, these people was there to hold my hand and would let me rant. Not only have they made my life easier, they've made my life worth living again...and I've yet to meet them face to face. I do not know where I would have been today without them. So not only have they impacted my dA life and my art, they've set footprints in my heart.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

    I prefer to knit since it's easy and portable and it's also a kind of therapy so I would have to say knitting needles and yarn. But all in all, I prefer any kind of traditional art medium, so I could just as easily say pencils and paper and metals, saws and hammers.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    Hmm... Not really sure... I mostly sit at home when crafting while I watch movies, TV-shows or Youtube on my laptop, and I get most of my inspiration online...

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    My favorite dA memory... Gawd... There's too many to list.  I feel like I create new dA memories all the time.

Hey Lizzy how are you? Just want to say I had a lovely time in the chat room last night.  Since we where all talking about Crocheting, I return to my Crocheting ways. I wanted to make a Granny square blanket with my leftover worsted weight yarns. Im still working on the sock yarn blanket but I  think im going to add more colors to it. Just two colors is boring. And Im should use the needles my yarns ask for. That ok. I like knitting and crocheting.
