I notice it looks like I've dropped a stitch, even though I have the correct number of stitches on my needles.
I read this earlier and thought, I know what you're talking about. I'm still a novice knitter so I didn't reply before experienced knitters could. I've thought about it some more and it's possible you're doing an unintentional yarnover that leaves the yarn looser; or for whatever reason the stitch isn't actually knitted (or purled) and just gets moved to the right needle. I'm not always sure what I've done when I see this. I am sure it's frustrating and annoying.

Maybe you'll figure it out and I can benefit from your experience. Please?????

As for it happening in the same place, I've noticed that I tend to have stitches that are looser or I make some mistake in the same place and it seems to be a spot that I have to shift the stitches on the needles, particularly if I'm using circulars to knit back and forth rather than in the round; that one spot is troublesome.

Thanks, everyone! I went home and took out the row I knitted last and started there. I focused on tightening the tension on the first few stitches when I switched and it seems to have done the trick! I ony had time to do a few rows, so we'll see what happens. I think part of my problem was that I was trying not to knit so tightly because I have a tendency to do that. Apparently that is common with new knitters.
