Fifty-two inches long. Baby alpaca/silk calories? Let’s see, Pam, 33 repeats x four rows x 21 stitches + cast on and cast off rows = 2794 stitches/calories, plus cherries and melting chocolate. As the sign at Rick’s Rather Rich Ice Cream proclaims, “Life is uncertain; eat dessert first.”

Knit long and prosper.

When I see one of your lace scarves I instantly think of floating. The scarves look like they should be floating through the air.

Thank you! It’s just one skein, knits up in no time. First time I’ve ever shipped off a box addressed with the recipient line stating “The woman who almost got Ben and Jerry’s from Kristine” and then the address. If she was confused when she opened the door to Kristine, I wish I could see her when she opens that box. No, no, lady, there’s no bill enclosed, no, you didn’t order it, no, I’m not a company, no, this is just because life is good. Celebrate, and have a little no-guilt ice cream just because. (I covered the red plastic bowl with plastic wrap that I taped down on the underside, the wrap holding everything in place so that the image of the bowl of Cherry Garcia would survive the trip through the post office.)

I’m suddenly wondering what the expression on the mail deliverer’s face is going to be when they read it!

Those calories are soooo worth it! And yes, eat dessert first whenever possible. . .when the kids were small, we used to sometimes go to the frozen yogurt shop for DINNER! We’re such good parents! *grin*
