I am new at this and have done yoga socks and thought I would do mary jane slippers; however right at the bat there is a new technique that I just cannot visualize - help please:-)

Begin at toe end with pair of double-pointed needles, cast on 18 sts (I can do this)
Turn work upside down - cannot visualize at all
With RS facing and second needle, pick up and knit 18 sts along cast on edge - do no understand (i have an idea but then the next line confuses me)
Divide 36 sts as follows: 18 sts on 1st needle, 9 sts on each of 2nd and 3 rd needles. Join in rnd placing marker on first stich..

If anybody can explain this or has visuals this would be greatly appreciated!
