Attempting to finish the bag ... whether it be inside out or not ...
Knit three inches. Set up round: *K10, place blue marker, K30, place blue marker, K10, repeat from *
Continue with the random purls, one per marked section, and at the same time begin decrease for bottom.
*K10, slip marker, slip two stitches as if to knit one at a time, insert LH needle into front of sts from left to right and knit these two sts together (ssk). Knit to two sts before next marker, K2tog, K10, then repeat from *. Continue until there are ten sts between each marker.
So, does this mean to k10, move your marker to other needle, slip two st to the other needle without doing anything with them, put your LH needle through into the two st you took off, and K them together so you now have ONE st on the needle?
