Is there a difference between pu and pu and knit?

Hi:

I’m making the “knit2together” house slippers and am stuck, well, in several places actually. But for the moment, they say to “pick up and knit”. I have checked several other patterns I have used and they just say to “pick up” stitches. Is there a difference? I’m assuming that I’m just supposed to pick up these stitches knit-wise but I want to be sure.

Thanks!!

Here’s a link, not that it really provides any info,…

Are you a member of Knitting Daily? They had this very topic a few days ago. There is a step by step tutorial and pictures. Well worth the effort to join (along with free cool patterns).

Yes, just pick them up knitwise. There’s a video here under Tips I think, for how to do that.
