Coming up a stitch short...

So I've run into a small problem. I'm working on the back, and (I swear this didn't happen during swatching) after I finish a complete lace section (that is, rows 1-6, 3-6, 3, 7) I purl a row, count, and come up with 98 stitches instead of 99. I fix it either in the purls or in the first purl row of the next lace section by not purling 2 together around the middle (p1, yo, p2tog).

Is anyone else having this problem, or is it just me?

Does the short count only happen after the last row of the lace pattern? Some have said that they were forgetting that last YO in row 4. Also make sure you're doing that last increase in Row 7. I had a stitch or two less than I needed once or twice, but I know that's probably why.

I think I was missing the last increase in row 7 of the lace. I did it today and counted and had the right number. I think that fixed it. Thanks!
