knit in space?

I'm working on Fetching, from the latest Knitty, and it gives me this set of directions for the thumb:
"[...] there will be 7 sts below the opening and 6 sts above. Attach yarn and k the 7 sts on lower needle; using a second needle, pick up and k 2 sts in space between upper and lower needle, k first 3 sts from upper needle; using a third needle, k remaining 3 sts from upper needle and pick up and k 2 sts in space between this needle and lower needle. [...] "
Can anyone make sense of that "knit in space business"? It has halted my forward momentum.

Socks are done...and a question

The socks I've been slowly working on are finally done!  They are 100% alpaca and very cozy.  I'm pretty happy with them, they look nice and fit well.  The only thing I've noticed is that the second one is just slightly bigger than the first.  I think my guage was a little looser on the second.  Does anyone know if there is a way to safely shrink the left sock to match the right one?  Again, it's pretty minor, but if it's anyone has any tips, I might try to rememdy it.  Thanks everyone and take care!  -Ken

Scarf Finished

2 out of 5 scarves for the Christmas list are now done. This one was fun because of the combinations of odds and ends from my until-now-untouched 10 year old stash.
