You want to make one left before the marker, slip the marker, k1, and then make one right.
So 2 repeats would look like
K1, make 1 right, knit to the next marker, make 1 left, slip the marker, K1, make 1 right, knit to the next marker, make 1 left, slip the marker (and then repeat from the K1).

Antares, I dare say your Home Ec teacher was a process sewer with a perfectionist streak!

Being firmly in the Type A personality camp (the typical product knitter) made admitting to myself that I am a process knitter difficult to accept. That's where turning off my internal knitting police fear of wasting productive time really helped, and all of you repeating the mantra about "just" ripping it out let me focus on what really matters to me - the act of knitting.

I do love getting to the destination of a FO, but now I can really enjoy the journey with its re-knitting side trips, thanks to all of the reminders to just rip it out.

Yes, I am a special kind of crazy!

Charlotte: Your kind of crazy works for me, the so-called "sane" people I've met I didn't even want to get to know. It took a while for me to get that frogging and starting over really is OK, sometimes I have to let something that just isn't going right sit for a while before I can frog, but then it's OK. Home Ec teachers taught sewing and cooking their way were things I never wanted to do, but I was sewing and cooking already. I told my kids that they have to do things the way the teacher says and don't feel like they should explain that the way they already learned is better. I figured they might learn something useful and there are times when we just have to get through. So, keep being your own special crazy, it's easy to appreciate.
