looks like drop/run, but not?
I am working on a bag and I found a hole...I figured I had droped a stitch and not picked it up at the right place...so I took it off the needle and let it unravel past the hole. When it got there, it, err, stopped. Most drop stitches look like this:

V---VV
V-v-VV
V-v-VV

Mine looks like this:

V-----Vvvv
VV---VVVv
VVV-VVV


So there is no "chain" below the place where it looks like I have a drop stitch...what have I done and how do I fix it without knitting back 4 rounds....?

You may have accidentally increased and knit that stitch for a few rows. When you dropped it, it left the gap. If the bag is felted, I wouldn't really worry about it. See if things even out when you tug at it a bit.

Yup, that's exactly what happened. I realized it just after I posted. The bag is going to be felted, but I'm hesitant to go on without knitting back or ripping out, because the rest of the bag looks spectacular. I will try to space out the extra yarn in the surrounding stitches, but I may end up just knitting back. Thanks!
