Knitr not knitting?

Long time lurker, first time poster. I've finally run into a problem I can't solve on my own. I've been using flexdashboard no problem forever at this point but I went to sleep last night only to find that when I try and knit it this morning, I get this message:

Error in file(con, "w") : cannot open the connection
Calls: -> -> write_utf8 -> writeLines -> file
In addition: Warning message:
In file(con, "w") : cannot open file 'xxxx': Permission denied
Execution halted

I'm an admin and I have permission to write in the particular folder I'm in. Pls help as I've spent several hours and I am still unable to knit a simple dashboard or anything else for that matter. Thanks in advance!
