Honeycomb from Knitty, in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. I printed the pattern on March 26 ... 2008. Got to the top of the ribbing, did the first row of the pattern stitch and paused, uncertain about the honeycomb itself, and there it has remained for nearly two years. Tch.
Remembering the very first row of cabling essentially every stitch one at a time, I thought yesterday, "well, that will never do," and dug out the instructions for left and right twists. Much easier.
So instead of C2B, do the RT: K2tog but do not remove sts from needle, K first st again and slip both sts off needle together. And instead of C2F, do LT: K second st tbl but do not remove it from needle, K first st and slip both sts off needle together. Easy peasy.
I'm still not wildly enthusiastic about the honeycomb stitch, but it goes quickly, with just K2, P2 rows on the wrong side and mostly K rows on the right, and every now and then what, without even thinking about it, I started calling the twizzle row.
Not twizzles, but I like this couple, Meryl Davis and Charlie White of Michigan, in the free dance Sunday evening.
