Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Yesterday was a busy day.

Well, by now you've probably figured this out, but just in case you haven't, try this:
  • Do the wrap as you normally would.
    Continue working in the round until you get to the wrapped stitch.
    Slip that stitch knit-wise then put it back on the left needle.
    Lift the wrap and place it onto the left needle.*
    Knit these 2 stitches together through the back loop.

*For the neatest result, switch the order of the stitch and the wrap so the wrap is on the left. You can do this by pulling the slipped stitch out from under the wrap and then placing it back on the needle.

I sort of "unvented" this (as EZ would say), but got a nice looking result if I do say so myself. If you try it, let me know how it turns out.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
