What materials did you use? From just some leftover purple yarn & silver beads.

What are you most proud of? The fact that I actually did it. I'm not really a knitter; it was my first ever lace attempt & it really turned out nice. Had a few problems following the example knitting, since I am a Dutch knitter and use another technique (needle under the arm & right hand handling of yarn). But now I've figured out how to interpret it and it went really well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a nice project to start learning both lace knitting and knitting with beads.

Love the color! If you don't mind, what yarn is it? I haven't done one yet, but jumped ahead and put beads on another lace shawl of Lauras.

sorry, no idea which yarn it was; just a crap that was lying around again. These cuffs are just my way of learning to lace-knit and have a look how the wools are looking and to learn if I am a loose or tight knitter and such. Having a bit of a scare to choose for my first shawl.
