I have her Animal Knits book.
I put some yarn on the needles and tried it.
Putting the first stitch nearest the point of the cable needle back on the left needle is silly because you might as well just purl it from the cable needle.
When I put the stitch furthest from the point on the cable needle back on the left needle, it felt very familiar. That's what I would go with. It should work, but if it turns out wonky, I apologize.
