aww I am glad you guys like it!
the only problem with the stitch is that it is mostly garter (just with a very slight modification) so it curls in - boo to that.  basically you just knit 4 rows of color and then drop stitches and pick up the stitch with the background color so it basically puckers the yarn.  best alternative to stripes ever!   Cheesy

I hope I'm not the only one confused.

Can you write out an example?  What stitches get dropped (how many?) and what stitches do I pick up?

I think this looks so nice, but my google-fu is failing me.

I did a quick google and think this same stitch pattern is also called honeycomb

its a really fun knit - just juggling the different balls of yarn can be a bit tedious at times - especially if you take it with you - hello tangles!   Undecided

lexer:  the honeycomb stitch will knit up similar to the blister stitch but it is not the same - it won't pucker but it does end up looking similar.  I had just borrowed the book until I got the knack of the stitch and then returned it so i don't have the exact info.
basically you just do 4 rows of a color in stockinette then you switch again to the background color knit as many as you want the size of the blister (i used 3 sts) then at then next st drop stitches till you get to the background color below then pick up and knit through that stitch.  this will make it pucker because you are dropping 4 rows but have knit to make it 3.  if you want to rotate the "dots" then you just change where you drop the next stitch in the next repeat.
I have seen this stitch done all in the same color as well and it makes a really cool texture.

you can actually see the stitches here pretty clearly:
as you can notice, the "dots" are 4 rows whereas the background is only 3 rows.
if you need clarification, again, please let me know with what and i will help!  Cheesy

I've found something very similar. The background colour is A and the contrast colours B and C

CO a multiple of 4 + 3 in colour A
K 1 row in A
K 4 rows in B in stocking st
Blister row: Switch back to A. K3 *slip next st off left needle and drop it 4 rows. Insert the right needle into the stitch on the 5th row down. Insert the left needle into the stitch as usual making sure you pick up the running strands between the stitches above at the same time. Knit the stitch. K3. Rep from *
K 1 row in A
K 4 rows in C in stocking st
Using C repeat the blister row
K 1 row in A

Hope that makes sense. I haven't actually tried it myself but seeing Shara's excellent results, I think I will.
