Two "1st's": Lace and Charts

Thanks to my wonderful Intermediate/Advanced Knitting teacher, Lisa, I started this beautiful lacy scarf in Tilli Tomas' 100% silk in Jade color. Lisa's favorite knitting was lace knitting, and she gave us this pattern from as a great start to lace knitting. I was lucky enough to grab two skeins of this color, and two skeins of a silvery color from eBay for a fraction of the cost. (We all know how much TT yarn costs.) I'm very fond of this pattern and I have to say - I'm quite proud of myself since this is my first lace project, and the first time I'm attempting to read the chart as opposed to the written instructions. Symbology? I think it's called. Anyway... here it is.
