Knitters?
In the context of:
Row 1 - Knit to within 6 stitches of marker, k2 tog 3 times, slip marker, k2 tog 3 times, k1, turn, purl 8, turn and knit to end of row.
what does "turn" mean? My books all say "turn work around". So, okay, I turn it around, and purl 8, then turn it back. What's the functional difference between that and just knitting 8 without turning it around at all?

I suspect there's an Important Concept I'm missing here.

Is it that one good turn deserves another?

Knitting always reminds me of my grandma Bufton. She used to spend hours at a time knitting; I suspect it was theraputic. It's at times like this that I really miss her (and it just reminded me to write to my grandfather, who hates phones even more than I do).
