Don't know if it's that, or if it's the difference between the Wool Ease I'm using and the heavy worsted that was called for. I used to knit so tight I could barely fit the second needle through the...

Jan, yes, that's what I mean. It's like the new strand won't stay anchored - maybe because it's just 3 stitches? I've watched the video on picking up stitches on the site, but it doesn't seem to work...
