Oh, and I really ought to mention again that this is not tatting. A few folks on my facebook page have assumed it was, which isn't such a stretch because that's what I am known for. If you've just tuned in here, it is called Armenian lace in the book I learned it from, but is incredibly similar to Turkish oya, or knotted oya, or actually about a dozen other names. Since I learned it from that book, I tend to call it Armenian knotted lace.
After a couple more rounds of plain loops, I decided to change it up again. This one is referred to as the honeycomb stitch. I haven't a clue as to why, it doesn't look very 'honeycomb' to be me, but I thought I'd give it a go for a few rounds at least. I haven't measured it again yet, but the growth is slowing, so it wouldn't be much of a dramatic change. I plan to do enough rounds of this to see if it does look more like it's namesake eventually. Then it will be back to plain loops for a while again. I guess we'll see how far the weekend gets me. We have a school outing today, so I likely won't get any done today, but the rest of the weekend should be fairly quiet. You might see another inch by Monday.
