Tried tinking but not making headway. Homespun yarn and me do not work well together.

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?

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.

My children talked me into Facebook so I could keep up with what they were doing. Then they regretted it because I knew too much about them. I rarely go there anymore.

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.

On twitter, you can't see all of the letter, I would love to see a copy of the full letter in a bigger format so it could be read.

I right clicked, selected copy and then pasted it into Microsoft Word. Much bigger.

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.
