Ok, so somehow, while I was mindlessly working away on my Booga bag for the Knitting Olympics, someone snuck in and put in a yarn over.  Of course, I didn't notice it until I'd completed 2 or 3 more rounds.

So I probably only have 3 choices:
1.  Ignore it, hoping that the felting will fix it.
2.  Wait till I get home, whip out my handy-dandy crochet hook, and drop the stitch.
3.  Frog it completely back to the row, remove the yarn over and go back to knitting.

Any thoughts?  Any other techniques you'd recommend?

I don't know what the booga bag pattern is like, but if it is just plain knitting, so the number of stitches is not crucial, I'd just keep going, especially if you are going to felt it later.  You can just catch the hole together with a littlle stitch (sewn) when you are finished, if it shows

This is assuming that by 'yarn over' you mean you have inadvertently made an extra stitch

It's going to be felted, so I'd just ignore it.  I bet if you were worried about it leaving a hole, you could just somehow do a duplicate stitch or just tie a little piece of yarn across the hole.  It'll be gone when you felt, I'm sure.

Well, it was only 2 rows, so I ended up dropping the stitches, and moved on.  The little bit of extra yarn will get worked around a bit, just to keep some of the tension.

Thanks for the help!
