wrapped short rows

agh! i swear sometimes im just short row retarted. I have some longies where my short rows look awsome and sometimes ( like today) i just cant get them right. Its always the short row on the second marker that gives me a hard time. I just cant get the second wrapped stitch to 1) not be crazy tight when i go to pick it up and knit it with the stitch its on and 2) it still leaves a small gap sometimes ( today ive done it 4 times beofre giving yp) on only my second marker. Can anyone give me any pointers. Should i tyr a diffrent short row method if so which one. Im so annoyed about this I NEED HELP!

Re: wrapped short rows

What it is? I would love a link. The way I do it is pretty good but I am always willing to try another. I always have a hard time getting it to look good at the second marker.
