Knitting is at a stand still HELP!
I currently am knitting a stocking flat. I have already knitted both the left and right half of the heel (turning and all)...
I finished off with the right side of the heel-

Row 9: K6, SSK, k1
8 sts rem. Break Yarn

My instructions now say-

From wrong side, sl these sts to free needle. From right side, knit across 8 sts of right half of heel; with same needle, pick up and K9 sts along side edge of heel flap, k across 27 sts of instep, pick up and K9 sts along edge of left heel flap, k8 sts of left heel from holder-61 sts. Purl 1 row.

The next set of instructions is for the Gusset
but my main confusion comes from the Foot instructions... WHAT ARE THEY TELLING ME TO DO?!?

First of all I am assuming they are telling me to look at the WS of the knitting and start slipping the stitches to my working needle? Then they want me to turn it around and work it while looking at the RS? Is that correct? Then they start talking about the side edge of the heel flap...this is where they really lose me because I have no idea what that means. Can anyone help? PLEASE take pity on me, I'm 9 months pregnant and trying to make this for my baby.
