tricky baby blanket pattern instructions - help!
I've been knitting for a few years now but I just came across a baby blanket pattern instruction that really confuses me. Can any of you more experienced knitters offer any possible interpretation of the following?

1st Row (RS) *P3. yrn. P2tog. P1. With yarn at front of work, slip next 8 sts onto a cable needle. wrap yarn counterclockwise 3 times around sts on cable needles, pulling yarn slightly. Leave yarn at back of work. [K1. (Inc 1 st in next st) 6 times. K1] from cable needle. P1. P2tog. yrn. P5 Rep from 8 to end of row.

It's the counterclockwise wrapping that trips me up. Where exactly am I wrapping the yarn, and what do I do with the extra yarn when I'm knitting off the cable needle?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The yarn wraps around the 8 slipped sts on the cable needle. It's in the front, wrap it to the right of the sts to the back, then around to the front, to the back and front and to the back and leave it there. When you knit the sts off the needle the wraps just stay there.

Thanks Suzeeq! I guess I was confused because I thought I should be wrapping around the needle, not the stitches themselves, and I didn't know how to proceed from there. I will give it a shot!
