Hey everybody, sorry for not being very active lately. May was a very hectic month (sort of) for me and it didn't leave me much time for crafting.

At the very beginning of the month, actually, a month ago today, my parents came over to pick me up to go to my two oldest nieces' birthday party. And since they were already up north here, I hitchhiked with them to my hometown for a bit of vacation. The next weekend you see, we were going to attend the funeral for my grandfather's lady friend, whom have been like a grandmother for me for about 18 years (also the sixth grandmother figure I've lost...in general that is...my grandfather didin't have that many ladyfriends), so I've been pretty upset. It still is hard for me to believe that she's gone, and whenever I think of her amazingly delicious waffles, I tear up a little...
Anyway, the weekend after the funeral again, it was the 17th of May, the national day of Norway, so I figured I'd might as well stay for that too. So that's two weeks I've been away, and during this period, I've had to be social and outgoing, which ment that I didn't have my usual time to knit. Not to mention that I've been doing some rosepainting for my mother which took forever and a half (you can check that out on my other profile LARvonCL )... And because of this, I've had a close to normal sleepschedule, so I haven't been able to host the chats over at Knitting-and-Crochet either...and I'm trying my best to keep the sleep schedule, so that's why there haven't been any as of late anyway.

But crafting wise... I have finished technically two projects during the month of May. One being a cowl I've test knitted for Nerds-and-Corsets. It is finished, I just need to block it, but I'm a lazy butt, so please excuse me on that part. The second project is a cardigan I've knitted for my mother at the beginning of this year. She handed me the yarn over Christmas and I finished knitting it in february me thinks it was... Since I don't have a working sewing machine, I couldn't do the steeking on it because the yarn wasn't 100% new wool. So I handed it back to her to finish it off, but she never did. I ended up pushing her to sew it while I was home, so I could cut it open and knit the rest of it and also hand stitch the edges down. When I left, it still needed buttons and blocking, so pictures will be comming sooner or later this year...I suppose.

Also, I've lost my premium membership, which has resulted in me losing a few of the helpful widgets I had going on on my profile... Yarn and project counter expecially. And I've also lost 8GB of my Sta.sh, my journal skins as well has being able to post thumbs. It sucks very much indeed. But not much that can be done, sadly. I can't afford a new one myself, so until then, I'll just have to write down all of my details and new yarn other places.

But not to worry my friends, I am currently working on a sweater and I've got yarn for atleast two new cardigans, so stay tuned! The summer months will hopefully be filled with crafts!

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.
