Need help with pattern...

I am knitting Spiraling Square Socks by Jenny Blackburn (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spiralling-square-socks) and am a bit stumped on the heel set up. The directions say:

"Heel Setup:
K7, turn your work so that the wrong side is facing, P34
(Note: Knitting 7 before turning and purling 34 lines it up for the top of foot pattern later.)
Heel:
Spiralling Square Socks

First Sweater

I have been lurking around this site for a while now. Have just started my first sweater and decided it was time to post. Past knitting has consisted of socks, hats, cowls and scarfs. All projects that are relatively quick to knit up.

Annie's tank

Well my first venture into womens couture is finally complete. It was a nice easy knit - one of those really relaxing projects. This is for my friend Annie for her b-day the end of November. Hopefully she'll like it and let me take a few shots of her in it. I wish her birthday weren't so far off. It was knit in Classic Elite's Firefly, size 3 needles.

Fall colours

Early this summer, when looking through a thrift shop, I located a large bag with three large balls of yarn in it. Upon investigation, I noticed it was a kit for an afghan that someone had begun, and never got to finish. Everything was there: the yarn, instructions, cable needle still in the stitches. The price was right, so what else could I do but buy it.
