Have I ever told you about my BFF?

This little ball weighs about 5 grams, and should be just enough to add dainty picots to the short edges of my Dolphin scarf. It is what remains after knitting 28 repeats.

Hello?!? Twenty-eight repeats! Exactly what I calculated way back when!!!

Math + Grumperina = BFF

Fortuitously, the scarf is 52″ long in its unblocked state, so one skein of Seasilk once again knits up to a respectable length! After double-checking one last stash for a matching dye lot (just in case: won’t hurt for it to be a bit longer), I should be binding off later this week!

    YAY! Your BFF is a lovely, lovely gal. 🙂 I used a modified version of your maths when I knit my first shawl and it worked great. Phew.

    Wow..math gives me a rash. I envy you and your relationship with math. 🙂 I’m excited to see your scarf when it’s completely finished.

    Now according to Hoyle, Mom would jump in here and say, “See! That’s what I sent you to college for!” I hate it when Moms are right.

    Yup, lovely, logical math is one of my favorite things about knitting. And that explains why your blog is one of my favorite reads.

    I am IMPRESSED. A little scared, but impressed. That’s a lot of pretty fancy mathematics you got going on there. The Sea Silk is so luscious, though, I can see how it’d be worth the effort. 🙂

    Impressive. Math and I don’t hang out too often. (It’s because I think it and my husband have a crush on each other.)

    I can’t wait to see the finished product! After all your raves about the sea silk I am seriously considering buying some. I blame you.

    Ah, it is comforting to know that my lone skein of Sea Silk will reward me some day if I just do the math. You’re my hero. 🙂

    I’m slow. I can’t figure out what BFF standsfor. Thanks.

    And, as always, what absolutely beautiful work!
