I was able to knit a bit during meal breaks and bathroom breaks and before we started. Just a wee bit of scarf, which is a great pattern for knitting without giving it too much thought. I will keep it in my knitting bag for doctor's offices and the dance studio to keep busy. It may take me a year to finish, but a year will have passed anyway, might as well have a new scarf.
I did finish one fingerless glove and cast on the second. It knitted up pretty quickly though I admit I did my own thing when it came to the fingers (can you tell?). The instructions made no sense at the time (knitting the fingers of a glove at the dance studio is probably not a good idea) and so I just made some notes and worked out the numbers on my own. I haven't blocked them, but I think they will look much prettier when I do. I'll get back to ya when I do.
I am still reading Stella Bain by Anita Shreve, but my eyes can barely stay open at bedtime to get much reading in. These long winter nights just put me right to sleep (the book is not boring, I'm just sleepy). Yesterday, on the feast of St. Felix, Faith and I enjoyed this wonderful book, St. Felix and the Spider, written by Dessi Jackson and illustrated by Lydia Kadar-Kallen, the lovely daughter of Kimberlee at Pondered in My heart. The illustrations alone are worth owning this book, but the story is very sweet as well.
