Ready for Backyard Leaves!

OK, I have the book, I have the needles, I have 5 balls of KP Andean Silk in Lettuce - I'm finally ready to try Backyard Leaves. BUT - this is my first time working a chart and I have a question. I understand that when reading a chart, you read it right to left for row 1 (RS), left to right for row 2 (WS), etc. But what about the set-up row on this pattern...?? I assume it's WS and I should work it left to right? purl, purl, knit, purl, purl, purl, purl, sl 1 etc.

Thanks for any advice!

    Yes, it's the wrong side. I hope you like the andean silk... I did mine in andean silk and I dont know I just didnt like it. The yarn just seemed to be ratty to me.. maybe I'm just a ratty knitter.
