OK, I'm knitting a little. Very little. A couple of dpns worth here and there. I've set the Paws to Remember Scarf for my SIL aside for a bit. I've knit on it steadily, [well, as steadily as you can knit when you only knit one row at a time] for a month now. I've made good progress on it. I'm two pattern repeats into the two strands of the #5 colorway. I need to knit a total 7½ repeats before the next color change, so 5½ to go! From what I can deduce from my blog entries when I started knitting again on this scarf, I knit around 106 rows in January. That's quite a bit. If I did even close to that in February . . .
But no, I'm going to switch for a bit to the dark heather gray Country Socks for Sweetie. I cast on for these on January 8 and only have 7 rounds done on the cuff. Most of that was done in one swell foop. So with dpns I'm doing only a couple of needles then stopping to read. A full round stitch count is 88 stitches, only one stitch less than the scarf. I need a bit of a break from the scarf. The Country Socks pattern has no ktog or ptog anything in the cuff so no strain there unlike my Christmas Monkey socks which does have those things. The Paws to Remember scarf does but I'm on larger needles and it's a pretty loose knit with lace weight, unlike with my tiny 2.25mm dpns and sock weight. We'll see how that goes.
I'm doing my hand exercises lately which I must shamefully admit I haven't been doing. And I really do think it is helping. But it's slow going.
Off to more reading.
