Oh, I am sure you are being clear... but something in my head just isn't clicking. But I think I may have just figured out something... I am working on a FLAT piece of work. I am just working on circs because eventually (if I ever figure out this damn picking up stitches thing) will be working in the round.
So even if I did knit my live stitches... would't I just end up in the same spot as I am now... only with 1 more row
This is the pattern (though you are the one who sugested it... so you probably know already)
