Often when I reach the last repeat of a pattern I feel a slight pang - almost as if I should be knitting the last repeat quietly and meditatively before it's all over. But right now I'm working one of the last half dozen C5Rp stitches ...
C5Rp: slip 2 stitches to cable needle and hold in back. Slip next stitch to second cable needle and hold in back. Knit 2 stitches from left needle, purl 1 stitch from second cable needle and then knit 2 stitches from first cable needle.
Fortunately these stitches are much easier to work than you might first think. But two cable needles!?! Really! I won't miss that.
