Unless stated otherwise, you can generally assume slipping is to be done purlwise (this is to keep the stitch loop going the right direction on your needles).

The abrivations wyib and wyif mean "with yarn in back" and "with yarn in front" respectivly. So, for wyib, put the working yarn to the back of the fabric (like you were going to knit), and slip the stitches purlwise. With wyif, pull the working yarn to the front as if to purl, and slip the stitchs purlwise.

Thank you so much. You are an . My gut instinct said to do it like you said but I just wasn't sure. I love this site. I'm sort of a self taught knitter, so this site is wonderful for me. I've have learned so much by just reading the posts! Glenda
