Feeling good about nearing the end of a sweater that took forever, I was working on binding off when I noticed a booboo. I forgot to slip one of the stitches over and now I have gone too far to back up. This means when I finish binding off, I will have one stitch left in the mddle of my work. Is there any other way to fix it?
I suggested that once but someone said it would be too expensive.
Would be fun. I did one where you started out with four skeins in a box and you mailed it to a participant and that participant took out of the box what they could use and added yarn. There always had to be at least four skeins in the box. Then that person mailed it to the next participant. In the box was a listing of all of the addresses and you crossed out your name and went on to the next. It had to be good yarn, otherwise not worth the postage. The person that started the box was last and got whatever was in the box.

I grew up the same except we did not turn on a faucet. The joke was, if you wanted running water, you ran to the well to get it.
EATING IN THE FIFTIES
Pasta had not been invented. It was macaroni or spaghetti. Curry was a surname. Taco? Never saw one till I was 15. Pizza? Sounds like a leaning tower somewhere. Bananas and oranges only appeared at Christmas time. All chips were plain. Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking . Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green. Cubed sugar was regarded as posh. Chickens didn't have fingers in those days. None of us had ever heard of yogurt. Healthy food consisted of anything edible! Cooking outside was called camping. Seaweed was not a recognized food. 'Kebab' was not even a word, never mind a food. Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold. Prunes were medicinal and stewed. Surprisingly Muesli was readily available. It was called cattle feed. Pineapples came in chunks or were round with a hole in the middle, in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one. Water came out of the tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than gasoline for it, they would have become a laughing stock. There were three things that we never ever had on/at our table in the fifties ... elbows, hats and cell phones!
.........and there was always two choices for each meal...
"Take it" or "Leave it"

I do have a family and a mirror. I am well aware of my obesity. Since it disturbs all of you so much, I will not return to Walmart and will do my best to stay at home behind closed doors to avoid offending you.
In finishing up the sleeves, while decreasing stitches, the last line says "cast off in pattern, dec 4 sts evenly across." How do I decrease if I am casting off the stitches? I am only working with 18 at this point.
