Anyway, I've been using it ever since and it works BEAUTIFULLY. Don't tug on the first stitch in the row but on the SECOND, it tightens up the first stitch and make for a lovely edge.
GinnyG, I can't be sure because I gave my copy away, but I was thinking I saw it in Stitch 'N Bitch.

It does the job. I think I've gotten it down a bit better now -- it's a little less conscious an effort than it was before, and I have a lot less going back to fix stitches than I did before, so that's a success!

I've also found that, on the last two stitches of a row and the first two stitches of the next row, putting my finger on top of the stitch I've just put on the right needle before sliding the stitch off the left needle helps a great deal too.

Thanks everybody!

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
