Okay so i am making the tabi socks and i have done all the way through the Turn Heel section but i am cornfussed. this is the second time i have gone through this part cuz i messed up in rejoining the last time but something i noticed before but just figured i miscounted somewhere along the line. this time i am sure i didn’t (though my mind is always a confused place so ya never know) and i am still coming up stitches short. I have 12 stitches on my needle right now plus the stitches on the holder. i am about to start the reestablish round section and it tells me to pick up 15 stitches and work across 30 stitches… am i messing up somewhere or are there stitches missing? (i have e-mailed the site for info on any errata but i am hoping one of you can help me out quicker than they will! :D)

»Knit all stitches. Using that same needle, pick up and knit 15 stitches along selvedge edge at side of heel, using slipped stitches as a guide. With a new needle, work across 30 stitches of instep. Using another new needle, pick up and knit 15 stitches along selvedge edge at other side of heel, using slipped stitches as a guide. Work 6 stitches from the first needle.
»The beginning of the round is now at the centre of the heel. There should be 21 stitches on the first needle, the 30 stitches of the instep on the second, and 21 on the third. Rearrange the needles if you need to.
