WIP Wednesday - Oops! I Did It Again

WIP Wednesday - Oops! I Did It Again

There is the toe of a knitted sock being held on fingertips. The yarn is pale yellow with black speckles with a ribbed pattern on the top. There are green bushes in the background.

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!!!

The image of the book cover "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline.  A red square background with the title of the book in yellow.

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?  

A knitted sweater in rainbow colors is lying on a bench with a brown, short haired cat sitting on top of it, looking directly at the camera.
I'm going to be honest, I was hoping the Rainbow Cardigan would already be done by the time WIP Wednesday came around.  I am so close!  The sleeves just need the red color added and then there is all of the sewing; blargh!  It's ok, I'll get through it.  As you can see in the picture, Leo is being very helpful and has all the confidence that I will finish before the end of the month.  
Question:  How do you get cat hair out of your knitted projects?  Asking for a friend.
