Yes, we're here to help people and if you don't understand something, you need it explained.

To pick up and knit sounds like it should be 2 steps and at one time it was done that way. But it's much easier and faster if you do it in one step. The left neck is as you wear the sweater, not as you look at it. Hold the edge and pretend it's your left needle. Insert the right needle into a stitch on the edge (pick up) then wrap the yarn around it and draw through (knit). Continue around the neckline then turn and do the next row.
