Like the next step says:

Row:1 S1, k1 across
Row 2: S1, p across

So the instructions for row 1 would have you believe that you are doing s1, k1 over and over until the end of the row. Whereas row 2 is s1 at the beginning and then purl the rest of the stitches. I have a feeling slipping every other stitch on row one would look quite funny!

Actually, that's how I knit my heels - slip every other stitch on the knit row, then when you turn, you purl across, just like you said above.  It looks quite nice, and apparently makes it more durable.  Give it a try!

Rats. Yeah, I already knit it in straight stockinette. Ohhh well. I'll be sure and try it out on the next pair, I assume it's not going to be detrimental to my project (i hope).

Ambimom: Thanks for that pattern, I'm comparing mine to that one and it's already helping!
