Sock Troubleshooting

Okay, I've hit my first sock roadblock. I'm skimming the page in Sensational Knitted Socks labeled "Troubleshooting," trying to figure out the gusset methodology.

Question #1: I'm picking up stitches after the heel turn to prepare to work the gusset. Am I just putting the selvedge stitch on the needle, or doing a conventional pick-up with a strand of yarn that loops through the edge of the fabric and then is placed on my needle?

And Question #2: how do I end up with 23 stitches on my needle? I have 10 from the heel turn; Schurch's instructions tell me to pick up 8 stitches, pick up 2 more at top of the gusset, place marker, P1, K2, P2, K2, P1. In my math world, that equals 19 stitches, not 23.

Have you checked for errata? It might be them and not you.
