Welcome to this first episode of a race through several lace socks, here on The Amazing Lace.
“Hi! I’m some sock yarn. I’m originally from Italy, actually. Please tell Minty that her hair looks just fine.”“We haven’t really been together for very long, you know, so this will be a real test to see where our relationship is going to go.”“One of our weaknesses is, I think, that Minty doesn’t really know what the hell she’s doing. I mean, she’s decided to apply lace patterns she likes (from the Barbara Walker Treasuries 1 and 2) to making socks (based on the useful Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch), but one of her big problems is the tendency to overanalyze. She’s going to be knitting me up and ripping me out repeatedly this summer, I fear.”
“You’re right, sock yarn, you’re right! I’m going to work really hard on this part of myself. I think that not only will this Lace teach me a lot about working with lace, and socks, but it will teach me a lot about myself. I need to just go with the flow, commit to one idea, and see it through. But there are so many different laces that call out to me.”“I think that other teams are going to underestimate us, because we don’t have a really long history with each other.”
“It’s true; I’ve only ever been with one other pair of lace socks before. Not only is this a test of my ability to successfully do lace, it’s a test of my ability to overcome Second Sock Syndrome.”
