3 ways to fix a dropped stitch

[one_half]Someone mentioned that I never show my mistakes in the videos (thank goodness for the ability to edit!)  I was on autopilot today picking up a dropped stitch and took some photos.

For some reason, this happens when I’m on the home stretch of my knitting, I’m binding off (around the gatepegs) and I drop a stitch.

Here are 3 ways to pick up a single stitch.[/one_half]

    Small problem but will apply to many, after a stroke has left me with very limited use of left hand I find it impossible to pick up a dropped stitch and was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem. Perhaps you could try using both hands BUT ONLY 1 set of fingers on 1 hand and only 2 on the other hand. Any help with this would also help others
