Counting bytes

See my point:
I need to send a list in a socket

server side
------------
list = [0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5]
client.socket.send(list)


client side
-------------
client.socket.recv(1024)

the problem is the buffer size (1024 bytes)
if i need to send a "big" list (with more than 1024 bytes), i have to count
the number of bytes to send in parts. So i must know how many bytes my list
oucupies.

Did your understand my problem ?
All the help you can provide will be apreciated.
