I'm working on this right now. I have never done anything more complicated than a short row hat, so I'm extremely confused right now. I'm stuck on this part:
"Starting at right heel and using MC, k 8 sts from holder, pick up and k 9 sts along edge of heel, k 26 sts from centre st holder, pick up and k 9 sts along edge of other heel, k 8 sts from rem st holder. 60 sts now on needle."
I have the three stitch holders with 8, 26, and 8 stitches on them. I don't understand what it means by knit 8 and pick up 9, etc. How do I knit stitches from the holder? Do I just put them all on the needle and knit them like they're a big row?
