W&T on slipper boots
W&T (WRAP & TURN:bring yarn to back of work, slip next st purlwise to right needle, take yarn to fron of work, slip st back to left needle, turn work. When working back over the wrapped sts, insert the right needle under the wrapand through next st on the left needle and work together the wrap and the st)

I am knitting ribbed boot slippers (MaryMaxim99588N) and have finished the upper boot shaping on the middle front section of the boot ending on a wrong row.(that row ends with a turn? do I turn and continue on the rest of the stitches to the back edge?) Here I am confused as if I don't I end up on the right side. instruction for this section are:
next row:sl 1 knitwise, rib 14, W&T
next row: rib 14, p2tog, W&T, rib to end (end of which row?)
next row:(wrong side)rib 15, W&T, rib 15 (same row?)
next row:rib across all sts (15 centre stitches or whole row?)
next row: decrease 10 stitches across the whole row)
next row: rib on remaining 35 stitches

(I haven't been able to get a response from MM - oh how I wish that section had photos of how my knitting should look )

next row RS:sl 1 knitwise, rib 14, W&T
next row WS: rib 14, p2tog, W&T,
RS rib to end (end of which row? the RS row)
next row WS :(wrong side)rib 15, W&T,
RS rib 15 (same row? again, the RS row)
next row WS:rib across all sts (the whole row? yes the whole row)
next row: decrease 10 stitches across the whole row
next row: rib on remaining 35 stitches

I've added comments in italics. Every time you turn, you're going to be on the opposite side row. Don't worry about sts left unworked, you can see that you'll be working those sts when you get toward the bottom of the instructions you've quoted.
Cozy looking slippers! Enjoy knitting them.

thank you so much
thanks so much for helping me through my first W&T. Finished the first slipper boot and it looks so nice - worth overcoming the frustration and seeking help

You did it! If you'd like, post a picture of the finished slippers. It would be great to see them.
