So I'm making these booties: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babybootsgarterstripe.htm
I'm a fairly experienced knitter- made lots of socks and things- but this part has me stumped.
It says:

Instep:
K 12 sts on needles 1 and 2. Do not work 12 sts on needle 3.
K 1 row; P 1 row; K 1 row; K 1 row for 15 rows over the 12 sts from needle 2 only.
Next row: K2tog, k across to last 2 sts, k2tog
P 1 row.
Repeat dec row - 8 sts remain

Now I have a cold, so I may just be too loopy to understand simple instructions, but I'm just not comprehending this. I've knit the 12 sts on needles one and two, and that's where I've stopped. is the "k 1 row, p 1 row" etc on needles 1 and 2? Just 2? It says "k 1 row for 15 rows over 12 sts from needle 2 only" but do the preceding instructions also only apply to needle 2?

This should not be so complicated! They are just baby booties, but I'm too sick and addled to work through this on my own.
Help, please!

EDIT: wait, I think I may have figured it out. is "K 1 row; P 1 row; K 1 row; K 1 row" a repeat, and you do that for 15 rows on needle 2 only?

yup - you're working just on the top of the foot stitches, the rest of the stitches are just waiting until you finish the 15 rows.
