Fixing an error in finished sock

Attached is a picture of the sock I finished and just tried on, discovering this missed loop. Any suggestions on how to catch this stitch?

Thanks....Susan

It doesn't appear to have caused a 'run' that you need to repair so I, personally, would probably just use a piece of yarn and a needle, pull the stitch to the wrong side and anchor the stitch with the yarn,,,then work in the ends of your piece of yarn. I've even been known to pull to the wrong side, and affix the loose stitch with a needle and sewing thread....if it hasn't 'gone' anywhere, you just need to make sure it stays where it is.
By the way....pretty yarn.

I was thinking of doing exactly what you suggested, but I thought there might be a better way.

I'm glad you like the yarn. It's a little wild for my taste, but it's hard to tell how this kind of yarn is going to play out on an acutal sock.

Thank you for the help.

I got the yarn at societysocks.com. They hand dye the yarn. No two alike.
