Loves Liza Minnelli, Dudley Moore, The Beatles, The Who, The Monkees, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Dean Martin, etc. Definitely born in the wrong era.
28 year old girl from the east bay area in California (read as: nowhere on the map) and also loves all things craft-wise. Is an avid cross-stitcher, knitter, crocheter, photographer, writer, loves drawing, and generally anything that involves making something pretty.
Also loves nostalgia. Both from the 60's/70's, from her own childhood in the 80's/90's, and some even older stuff. You've been warned.
I kinda forgot the last attempt at it had been living under my bed for over a year now….whoops. :p Welp. Since I haven’t mastered color changes (ala intarsia style knitting) yet, I’m taking a new approach: starting over (again) and trying this thing as a crocheted piece. I have NO idea how this is giong to go, since I’ve never done colorwork other than stripes in crochet yet, so this may be just as big, if not a bigger, epic fail than last time, but I guess we’ll see what happens. My fingers are crossed.
…but first, I’m airing out the yarn since yeah….it gets dusty smelling after living under a bed for a year. :p (I’ll give the blanket a proper bath when it’s done if it turns out this time, mostly since I don’t feel like dealing with the pain in the ass-ness of trying to wash skeins of yarn, hahaha). Also, for how dang many times I’ve had to re-imagine this piece and approach it differently, I think I’m going to officially title this project Imagining Liza. (No affiliation with the book of the same title, although I am friends with the author.)
I’m too stubborn to give up on this until I find a way to make it work. :p I guess that’s part of my Capricorn nature talking, haha.
