The final Amazing Lace challenge is to find an unlikely model. I didn’t participate in the last challenge, due more to forgetfulness than anything else, and I have been racking my brain to think of a good unlikely lace model.

A detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. In this Detour, teams must decide between two grueling choices: Frog It, or Knit It?
In Frog It, teams will take out the single sock (Minty-titled “Anastasia sock”)* they’ve completed.
Minty and her teammate, who arrived at the Pit Stop last Saturday, are now ready to leave. Teams will head into the most extreme of locales, to perform the most extreme feats. Teams are given $2 in quarters. (“Count the money!”)
Minty knows what’s coming as she rounds the corner. “Oh my god. No, it’s not . . . You’re kidding me! They can’t be serious.”
