Working on Coupling, in STR mediumweight "Red Rock Canyon". Fun! I'm turning the heel now.

Socks go really, really fast when you knit them at 8 sts/inch. Also when you get stuck filling in in the mailroom for a day even though you're a HIGHLY TRAINED PROFESSIONAL and have spent the past decade honing your skills to get out of the damn mailroom. But I'm not bitter. And I did get most of the foot done waiting for the phone to ring, so there you go.

Also still going with the shawl; I'm on repeat 9, which looks like almost halfway done, except when you start looking at stitches and realize that it's more like 30% done. Still, it's going relatively quickly. Except I hadn't worked on it in a few days, and when I pulled it out, there was a dead baby cucaracha in it! Ew ew ew ew ew! I mean, I don't think they eat wool, so it's not the end of the world (I hope?) but still. Ew. Dead baby cucaracha. In the mohair.

Yeah, have fun with that one, I'm going to go do the dishes now.
