extra and less stitches? Answered

I started with twenty five stitches and after some rows I counted 24. After a few more rows there was twenty five again and now I have 30 stitches. What could be causing this problem? Is there a way I can fix it in the middle of my work or do I have to just restart?

Lots of things could cause you to drop or pick up stitches, most likely the addition of extra stitches is caused by not fully disengaging the stitch you're knitting into after you've created a new loop. My advice to you (and anybody, really) is to count your stitches at the end of every row. If there's a mistake, you won't have to go back very far to fix it. =]
