Ok, so I'm knitting http://www.save-on-crafts.com/motoymoknpru.html. Monty the Monkey, in Red Heart Medium Worsted, because that yarn seems like too much for me. But I'm unsure about some things, maybe some of you experienced knitters could help me?Huh ?

(Row 1) * (KP, K2) 6 times. (24 sts)
(Row 2 and alt rows) Purl
(Row 3) * (KP, K2) 8 times (32 sts)
(Row 5) K2, * (KP, K2) 10 times (42 sts)
Work 3 rows stkg-st.
(Row 9) K2, * (KP, K3) 10 times
Work 3 rows.
Inc 1 st both ends of next row. (54 st)

These are the lines that are confusing me.
First of all, I get these little purl bumps in the middle of all the stockinette, but I assume it's supposed to be like that. My 2 questions
1- I worked row 5, then went on to 'work 3 rows stkg-st.' But if I did that, I would be knitting on the (so-far) purl side. So I did reverse stkg-st (I think. Where you start with purl, right?). Would that be right?

2- And the work 3 rows. Does that mean work in stkg-st?

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
