Markers and Slipping Markers
I have recently started a glove, and though it is not my first time on gloves, it is proving tricky. I am working now on the right hand thumb gusset. The instructions say that I should "k2, place marker, m1, k1, m1, place marker, k to end of round." Does place marker mean to tie a piece of thread between stitches? Then the pattern continues to tell me to "k2, slip marker, m1, k to next marker, m1, slip marker, k to end of round." What does "slip marker" mean?
This is very confusing to me, so if you can explain I would be grateful. Thank you!
