I'm teaching myself how to do socks on 2 circs using cat bordhi's book "socks soar...". Seeing as how I've only done one pair of socks before (on dpns) I'm a bit confused on the picking up gusset stitches part. I just finished turning the heel and am where it says:
With the same needle, knit up 15 sts in the loops along the heel flap. In the intersection of the heel flap and instep, pick up a stitch. On the next round you will knit it through the back loop. Place a marker.
Look at the other end of your needle, where the 18 heel turn sts are waiting. Transfer the distant 9 to the other needle.
First off, when she says "knit up" does that mean the same as pick up? I've tried several ways of doing what the directions say, but everything seems so awkward or just plain wrong!
Oh, I'm just so confused! I might have to put this away until sunday when I'm going to a Knitter's Afternoon In @ the LYS. The verbage on this is very confusing to me!
