I've finally learned how to read a lace chart! :woot: The edge by the knuckles could use more blocking, to lay flat, but overall I was very happy with this first attempt. Here are 3 views, top, palm, and close-up of the lace cuff.

Those are really pretty! What kind of yarn did you use?

Thank you both! Yes, that yarn was quite soft. I made another pair in a light blue silk (from a sweater I unraveled) that wasn't as soft (nor as stretchy) but still very pretty, with a nice sheen to it. My younger daughter wants a pair in a deep wine color. That'll be interesting.

As luck would have it, I have some left, with wrapper intact: Bernat Satin Sport, color 03007. It's acrylic but looks nice.

Those are very cute. Love the color, and I'm sure a deep wine would look good, too.

Lovely:inlove: And lace charts are really not that bad, are they? Once you know how to read them - you can do anything:cheering:

Yes, I was afraid of them at first. I was going to write out the instructions for each row (in words), but instead I forced myself to just follow the chart and found it pretty easy once I got used to it. I fold the page so the chart is near the edge, then use a paper clip to mark which row I'm on.
