Did I drop a stitch?
tined a row of knitting, started to re-knit and noticed that my edge stitch is very loose and long, think I dropped a stitch but it is not unraveling. How do i fix.

A dropped edge stitch always looks incredibly loose and long. Try one of the techniques here to fix it.

Count your stitches. If it's the same number you cast on, you didn't drop one; edge sts can look very loose on the first row. Knitting a few more rows will help it look a little better.
