Hihi,

Eyelet row: K1, * YO, K2tog * . Repeat from *'s to end.

P next row.

Divide for instep: K 22 sts, turn, P back over 11 sts.

Continue in Stocking Sticth for the next 14 rows on center 11 sts. Break off yarn

Sides: Pick up 7 sts on right side of instep, K 11 sts of instep, pick up 7 sts on left side of instep, K11 sts to complete row - 47 sts. Work 9 rows in stocking stitch. ( It'll be a little tight till you get a few rows up from the instep.)

The piece sticking up with your pin attached is the instep. With your right needle, pick up 7 stitches up along the right side as you're looking at it, knit across the top 11 stitches, then pick up 7 stitches down the left side, then knit the stitches that are on your left needle. All together you should have 47 stitches, which will include the stitches that are presently on your right needle. You'll have to reattach your yarn at the bottom of the right side.

Your diagram is right, and so clever! Here is how you pick up stitches.
