My husband just got back from an extended research trip. You would think that with him gone, I would be free to knit or sew well into the night and that this week I'd have gobs of finished objects to show you.

You would be wrong.

I did do more cutting out than I might have had he been here. I managed to cut out 40 seven inch squares of denim, and about 20 seven inch squares of flannel. But instead of knitting I read blogs--lots of blogs. I should have updated my blogroll (but didn't), and I should have written more entries (but didn't). I did no sewing, although now I do have some things to sew. I did a little reading of books, but not as much as you'd expect from someone who has to be told to put the book down and go to bed.

You would think that the several warm and sunny, play outside all day long and get your first sunburns would also have hindered the knitting.

You'd be wrong about that too.

The only real knitting I did was on the patio while my girls ran and played and laughed. I took frequent breaks to run and play and laugh too, but I managed to get all the rest of the panda pieces knit (4 ear pieces and a nose) and a good chunk of the (I only have the ears and tail to do).
knitting heaven

Really, all I need to do now is sew the animals up!
