1) I knit for three days, and I didn't knit for excessive time on any of those days (for your information, excessive for me is more than about four hours in a day) On each of the mornings, I woke up with sore and aching hands. This might be because I'm using circulars with short tips, or it might be the way I hold my hands when doing colourwork.
2) It's really, really boring. Most of the colour work I've done has been just a few rows, or a more exciting pattern. This is, essentially, the same three rows over and over again. But, because they are colour work there is not rhythm or flow, like I get with stocking stitch, or lace.
I was knitting this, on average three inches a day (no idea why I'm measuring in inches here). Because I'm short, to make it the same length on me at Kate Davies' is on her, I would have to knit it to 72 inches. Which means if I knit this, and only this for a month I might have it nearly done. Given I didn't find the knitting pleasantly challenging, or comfortably soothing, but somewhere awkwardly in between, I'm putting this in hibernation, until I can decide what to do with it.
