I think I only lasted a grand total of 24 hours on the enjoying having only finished projects thing. Yesterday evening was cold and rainy/snowy, and my hands were itching for some more knitting. So I cast on a Traveling Woman shawl with the Claudia's Hand Painted Silk yarn I bought last time I was up in Manchester, VT. It's going pretty fast through the increases right now.
I'm enjoying working with the yarn, but I can already tell I probably prefer working with a yarn with slightly less silk content. It feels beautiful, but is just a bit too slippery and splitty for my tastes. But I can also tell it's going to make a beautiful finished product.
