I'll give this a shot: Okay, so you work back and forth on the heel flap with the instep stitches being on a spare needle. Once you've completed the requisite number of rows on the heel flap, ending with a right side row, pick up stitches along one side of the flap, knit across the instep stitches, then pick up stitches along the other side of the flap. This brings you back to the knit part of the flap, so you are again knitting in the round. I suspect, from what you say, that you have knit back and forth an even number of rows, and that would indeed have you knitting inside-out if you picked up stitches at that point. You will actually knit one more row on the right side, after which you start picking up stitches. Hope this helps!
