Are you sure it's only one stitch? But yes, that can happen because the yarn stretches. It may be okay when blocked or washed. I usually just end up re doing it, but that's a pain.

I'm sorry about your mom. :hug:

I'd look into Etsy or Ebay. Or Ravelry (a knit/crochet community) If you set up shop there there are always people looking for yarns.
