kitty: Mia's socks are all boxed up.... finally

Name: Concentric Preppy Socks for Mia
Designer: Carissa Browning
Pattern : Concentric Socks
Fiber: Unknown
Needle: 2.25mm

If I think back it really has been a long time since I have actually knit a pair of socks. I think I just got really burned out when I was trying to knit a pair of socks a week for the 52 pair sock pack. That was a totally insane goal and I can not believe that I actually got as far as I did. The reality of a project like that is that you don't end up enjoying anything you are working on. It becomes a part time job.

When I asked Mia what she wanted for Christmas though, she asked for a new pair of socks. So I wanted to find an unusual pattern, something that would hopefully break the burnout. I think this one may be pushing the edge of unusual though. I really love the concept and they are a super fast knit. But I ended up with a lot of odd gathers along the bias. I am really hoping that with wear it will work itself out.

They have been done for awhile, but I just finally boxed them up to send them out to her. Best laid plans of mice and men.
