Sock Help
Hello. I made one toddler sock fine. But for some reason I'm having trouble on the 2nd. And I can't figure it out for the life of me what's wrong.

I make the cuff, which is all knit st (sorta like an ankle sock) on 3 dpn. Then when I divide on the heel. I put 12 st (needles 1) and 6 sts on 2 and 3 needle. Then when I start the divide on heel, 12 rows + 1 knit row. 1st row, sl 1, knit 2nd row sl 1 purl.

That's where my problem is. The purls are going on the right side. Bumpy sides on the smooth side. The working needle is in my left hand, yarn pulled in the back to knit and vice versa to purl.

It works out right if I sl 1, purl but then that's not following the pattern. And the work is all turned around.

Help me please!
