Do you mean you're slipping the 1st and last sts?
I have been starting rows by slipping as if to purl, and knitting all the way to the very last stitch of the row. Then I slip as if to purl again, and knit the last stitch again.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
