Fixing loose columns of stitches

Yay, TechKnitter!

Continuing on with her series of posts on how to fix uneven knitting, Post #3 is on fixing those loose columns of stitches you often get in ribbing or cables when you’re moving from knit to purl in the stitch pattern. I’ve still been working on getting this done properly as I knit, as I’m not crazy about re-knitting things as a fix. (“Aw, c’mon, I already knit that!”)

My favorite at first read is method #4 — slipping the stitches as you knit and picking up on the next round, because it comes closest to there actually being less yarn in the stitch, instead of just making a infinitesimally larger stitch to take up the slack.
