wrong side vs right side, dpns, socks, "knew knitter"
For years I have avoided knitting patterns out of intimidation.
I am making THIS year THE year I learn how to knit socks.

I need help.

Here is the pattern I am attempting, I say attempting because I have tried at least 1/2 a dozen times. I keep ripping it apart and starting over. I am determined.

Please suggest an easier pattern if there is one.. LOL

I am using DPNS, and I am confused as to which is the right side and which is the wrong side.

Knitting the Heel Flap

"Row 1: (wrong side) Slip the first stitch purlwise with the yarn in front, purl the rest of the stitches."

Am I suppose to be turning the piece, back and forth as I knit, etc?
In other words, am I suppose to hold the working piece in my left hand, and knit onto my right hand needle? Then turn it and do the 2nd row?

I ask because there is no mention of turning it, but turning is used on the next step?

Turning the Heel

“Row 1: Slip 1, purl 5, purl 2together, purl one. Turn the work, leaving one stitch unworked. “

Where do I leave it? Seriously? Do I slip it onto the right hand needle? I assume I should not leave it by itself on the lonely needle, since all his neighbors have moved to the other needle. ~help

Thank you for reading, I have more questions, but I am determined to understand the above before I ask any more.
