I casted on another pair of socks. Don't worry, I did finish the Fish Lips Kiss socks we did through the Yarn Geek University, but I might have agreed to test knit a pair of socks for Knitrino and their collaboration with Lady Dye Yarns. They're doing a KAL called Ready Knitter One, and I couldn't resist. I forgot how much I love that book. Things kept getting nerdy as I decided to use the Dragon Hoard Yarn in the colorway Hufflepuff Year 4 that I got for Christmas. When I participate in the actual KAL, I picked the Halliday colorway for another pair of socks. My son has also noticed a lot of sock knitting starting to happen and has informed me that he needs socks. I've got my eye on the Tigress colorway by Urth for him. Knit all the socks!!!
If you also decide to read the book (or in my case, listen), I have to warn you that it's a little eerie reading about a dystopian world where everything is virtual. I did envy how the OASIS school system was set-up, but the talk about our world in an energy crisis with devastating climate changes wrecking the Earth didn't sound too far from our current situation. In the very beginning of the book, Wade (the main character), made a comment about how the hunt for Halliday's Egg saved him and gave him purpose, which sounded a lot like what I hear from a lot of crafters, especially during these times. Does anyone else read GG Made It?
