One More Quick Question!
This is my first time experimenting with short rows and I understand the wrapping and turning and all that. My problem is after i have wrapped and turned 3 times (knit to last 2, w&t, purl to last 2, w&t, knit to last 3, w&t, purl to last 3, w&t, knit to last 4, w&t, purl to last 4, w&t) I'm not sure what to do with the last 3 stitches on my left needle! The next two rows I am supposed to work across in stockinette picking up wrapped stitches, but i'm not sure if I should go through the last 4 first, and then the whole row or through all the stitches on my right needle.

Here's the part of the pattern:
Beg short rows as follows:
*K to last 2 sts, wrap next st and turn.
P to last 2 sts, wrap next st and turn.
K to last 3 sts, wrap next st and turn.
P to last 3 sts, wrap next st and turn.
Cont as est until 3 sts are wrapped at each end of row and 1 st at each end remains unworked.
Work across 2 rows picking up wrapped sts at both sides of work and unworked sts.
Rep from * 16(18, 20) times while AT THE SAME TIME , M1 on each side of st marker every 4th row (counting rows up center of pouch) to 52[56, 60]sts.


Any input is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I think your answer is in this line --
" Work across 2 rows picking up wrapped sts at both sides of work and unworked sts."

So you will turn after the last w&t, work across that row, then on the next row, pick up any sts you didn't get on the first row.
