I've been knitting socks on the magic loop with good success. My Monkey Socks went like a dream until the absolute last stitch. When I graft, the last loop doesn't pull in -- it just stays as a big, old loop that I end up weaving in. I've made several pairs of socks in the last six months, and I cannot figure out to solve this; it happens on every pair, so I must be doing something fundamentally wrong to finish the graft, which otherwise looks fine. I'd appreciate it if anyone can offer advice. A photo of the offending loop appears below.

Could you take a picture of the toe facing the camera (w/ sock on your hand or something)? I don't tell what exactly is going on from to top of the toe, but I suspect that there are some twisted stitches in your kitchener.
