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.

I'm using your maths at this. very. moment. to figure out some sea silk conservation on a VLT scarf. So big thanks to you and your BFF. :)

Silly me, I thought you were going to say your BFF was Sea Silk. ;) Can't wait to see the finished scarf.

Yay for math!

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.

Yay Math! You know, your little ball looks so cute! I can't wait to see your scarf blocked out.

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.

Yay! Math rocks! I'm forever amazed that people pay me for this.

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

Ooh, the maths! They are the love :). Can hardly wait to see the finished Dolphin on display!

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.)

Together I am sure you will take over the known galaxy.

I wish Math and I were better friends....sigh.

Don't you love it when you find that you were right? It just feels so good :)

You + the Maths are definitely MFEO. Love all the current projects!

i like knitting, because it makes it not weird that i like math. :)

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.

Nice work!

You go, girl!

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!
