Oooh, jpants, I goofed!  I was trying to visualize ssk in my head but I didn't have any knitting (hard to type and knit at the same time)  I was knitting last night.  You are right, you wrap the yarn around the right hand needle and draw it through.  But it still turns out different than k2tog.

Slip both stitches on the right hand needle.  Insert left hand needle left to right in stitches.  Wrap yarn around right hand needle and draw through.  

Good luck, hopefully I didn't screw you up too badly!   Embarrassed

Not to worry.  I actually didn't have time to work on the project last night.  I was able to find some video clips of both stitches like you suggested and I think I've got it.  I'm sure once i've done it enough times it will make perfect sense.
thanks!

babyjoy, you were almost correct.  The difference is when you ssk you enter the stitches from the left (because they are already on the right hand needle), rather than from the right.

And don't be afraid of decreasing.  Once you do it a few times you'll be like "I was afraid of doing that???"  Wink
