k0 & p0???

What does this mean?! Does anybody know? I have looked in all of my references and no luck. I'm stuck on my work until I can get this. This is how the pattern is written:

Row 1: *K2, p2; rep from* across row; end k0 (2)

Row 2: P0 (2); *k2, p2, rep from * across row

I understand the ribbing, but not the k0 and p0. If it helps, these are the ribbed cuffs to a shrug.
(Knit on???) I'm sooo confused. Looking very forward to comments. Awaiting happy dance.

*sigh*

It means for the first size of the pattern you knit or purl zero stitches, that's why there is the 2 in the parentheses after the 0 because you would need to knit or purl 2 stitches for the second size. Is that clear? If not let me know!

Ahhhh ha! Makes sense. That was just too easy. Thank you soooooo much for explaining this to me. (I'm feeling very silly right now.) Your answer is much appreciated!
I can do the happy dance now.

Pretty quick answer, that's for sure!
I'm knitting the Fisherman's shrug from Knit It magazine. I'm using chunky wool and it looks really good so far. I'm not sure how it will look when I'm done, though.
Life would be so much easier if I had someone to physically show me how do these things. Thank goodness for this board and all the helpful people!
