Weekend Edition Sunday Puzzle
I spent some time working on this yesterday and got nowhere. I approached it in a better way this morning, and I figured it out. Yay.

Start with the letters "H - O." Add two consecutive letters of the alphabet, like "A - B" or "B -C." Then add 2 more consecutive letters of the alphabet, then do this a 3rd time and a 4th time. Then add the letters "N-T." The resulting 12 letters, in order, will spell a familiar two-word phrase. What is the phrase?

I'd be interested in what your first approach was. I tried a double-ended sort of strategy just now and figured it out quickly. I'm always interested in different ways folks go about solving puzzles.

When I started yesterday, I did a front-end strategy. Didn't even think about using the other end. Then it struck me that the back end had fewer options, so I focused on that. Found it fairly quickly when I did that.
