"YO backwards" & "Eastern Uncrossed"
With reference to the "short row heel" technique on this this website:

http://home.earthlink.net/~jeffnstasia/sox2.htm

Quote:
YO backwards on to RH needle (back under needle, over top, to front.), P across to 1 st. before end, turn.
and

Quote:
Increasing: 1) K1 (1st st. of pair), correct mount of the YO (you won't have to do if you knit Eastern Uncrossed style), K2tog. (yo plus 1st st. of next pair), turn.
The explanation here is very helpful, but there are a few terms which have me scratching my head.

Q1) What does "YO backwards" mean?

Q2) What is "Eastern Uncrossed" knitting? (How does it differ from continental knitting?)

Thanks in advance.
