work the first of the 2 rows again
I'm working on the knitting of Debbie Bliss's Sandals. There is one sentence: Rep the last 2 rows 7 times more, then work the first of the 2 rows again. What does it mean?

I'm not sure. I've seen patterns tell you to work some pattern stitch over so many rows, say 6. Then it may say to work the whole pattern 7 times then the first two rows of the 6 row repeat one more time.

If you are quoting correctly perhaps what you have is a pattern over some number of stitches and you have worked it so many times then the last 2 rows of the pattern stitch are to be repeated 7 times then go back and work the first two rows of the pattern stitch once more.

Could it be either of these situations?

Repeat rows 2 and 3 of the pattern 7 times and then work row 2 of the pattern.

Do just the last 2 rows 7 more times, then do only the first one. That should leave you in the right place to do the next instructions.

another thing, if it says "pick up and k15 sts along side edge of strap", does it means pick up 15 sts first then knitt that 15 sts or pick up 1 st and k 1 st until it becomes 15 sts?

Pick up 15 sts along the side of the strap. There's a video if you have a question about how to, there one on the Free Videos tab at the top of the page under Tips.

If you look at the video, you're picking up and knitting the sts at the same time. Insert the R needle into the edge (pick up) then wrap the yarn around it and pull through (knit).
