I am working on baby booties. I have not knitted in quite awhile, since my college days. I am trying to learn all over again. I am so glad to see a website that will be able to give me experience advise.

This is where I need help. I am having difficultly understanding pick up knit. Here are the following instructions. "Reattach MC, and k first 6 sts from holdre, pick up and k12
sts along side of instep, k16 sts from instep holder, pick up and k12 sts along other
side of instep, k16 from last holder-72 sts." Please give me some advise on this information. I am so excited about knitting again. Thank you for your help and advise
