extra stitch
Okay, I am still knitting this stocking and somehow have managed to pick up an extra stitch from somewhere. I don't know if it's a big deal and if it will affect the outcome of my project or if it's just no big deal. If it is a problem, is there a way to fix it? Can I just skip a stitch in the middle of my row?

If it's just one stitch, I'd knit two together (k2tog) maybe at the beginning or end of a row or anywhere if you're knitting in the round. No one will ever notice...and if they do, they're not your friend (as my sister says).
