This had me confused too hob.. Ok, you want to stitch 2 together using a purl, then move the stitch back to the left needle, with your main work it is just a slide
then pull the next stitch from the slid one over the slid (decreased stitch) and move the decreased stitch back to your other needle.

Yes you enter your needle into 2 stitches at the same time and purl them.
That will decrease 1 stitch - and the stitch is now on the right needle.
Now, slide that stitch BACK to the left needle without working it. Just slide it from Right to Left.
Now Take the Second stitch on your Left needle, and bring it over the first, and off the needle, you have now decreased 2 stitches.
As you all ready worked the first stitch on your left needle, just transfer it back to the right needle

WTG (way to go)
I knew you would get it.

It sounds a lot harder than it really is, and it took me trying over and over and over and asking the same questions you did for me to grasp it.
