I had to alter the pattern
Wow... that makes me feel like such a grown-up knitter :)
I mentioned yesterday that I was going to do the long-tail cast-on with a purled row to give me the edge I liked.
I realized as I started knitting the pattern that the first row listed is intended to be a wrong-side row. Oops! That's not going to work with the wrong side already established by the cast-on and purl row. So, I added a row 0... just a reverse of the listed row 1. Not a big deal, but I thought the information might be useful to anyone who planned on using the same cast-on method I am.
