Nicole’s Sexy Single’s Bar

I have a problem. It’s only just occured to me, this problem I have. You see I now have 5 lonely socks without a mate – plus a poor, solitary mitten, also mate-less.

It’s come time for me to admit that I suffer from Second Sock Syndrome. This means that I have many single (whiny) projects who want a mate. Lets meet one.

First up, Erica.

Nicole: Hello Erica, it’s nice to meet you.

Erica: Well it’s great to be here. I have a feeling that today might be the day.

N: How’s that?

E: Well, I have this feeling that I’m not going be single for much longer.

N: What makes you think that you won’t leave here alone?

E: Well, compared to these other socks here, my mate is already half-finished – ready for the heel turn. Also, I’m a rather pleasant pattern (Lace Leaves Socks) with such incredible beauty for such an easily memorized repeat. And – Look at my toe – the leaves finish themselves! How who can resist that?

N: That is a very clever detail I have to admit. What is your response to the fact that some of these other socks feel your yarn is a disadvantage?

E: It’s so hard to compete with merino! Stupid fiber snobs. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being superwash wool – heck, i’m even re-inforced with nylon. I’ll be here for a while – I’ll live through trips through the wash! And look at my coloring – such a gorgeous red. No one else here can compete with a red-head.

N: Well, best of luck to you! Let me know how things work out – And be sure to invite me to the wedding!
