Team Nonnalita

The Amazing Lace teammates Nonnahs (lacer) and Carmelita (lacee) have only known each other for a short time and are still learning how to deal with each other's um, idiosyncrasies. However, after much contemplation, both competitors are confident that they have what it takes to make a great team!

Is this really gonna work?

Meet Team Nonnalita:

The happy team

Carmelita is made of 100& baby alpaca - the stuff of a true lace champion. As such, she knows she can handle the challenges that lie ahead. When all is said and done, she hopes be a respectable version of Miriam Felton's gorgeous Icarus Shawl from the Summer 2006 issue of Interweave Knits. She is at times difficult, temperamental, and a bit of a diva, but can certainly get the job done. Carmelita hates tangles and knots. She loves being admired and petted.

Nonnahs is the pragmatist of the team. Her downfall may be her ability to psyche herself out, but she is nothing if not a loyal friend and teammate, and remains optimistic that this gung-ho enthusiasm and determination will help carry her team across the finish line with her first *GASP* lace project ever. Nonnahs hates math. She loves positive reinforcement and margaritas. On the rocks. With salt.

Misti Alpaca is such a nice yarn. Icarus is on my list to knit, too. Good luck to both you and Carmelita!
