when "good" gauge goes bad

I was happily knitting along, 13 inches completed...when I discovered that I had picked up an extra stitch a few rows down when my needle caught on a few plies of yarn.
when I dropped the stitch to remove it, the gap was way too big.
so I decided to rip back to where it all started.
when I took the piece off of the needles, something wasn't quite right.
it's supposed to be 42" in diameter.
*sigh*
