I think that's what they mean, yeah. That is -- you have the 9 stitches that had been bound off, and you're going to work with them as live stitches but *as if you've just knit them* (so your yarn starts at the inside edge of those 9 stitches, and you cast on more stitches -- I suspect to form the strap -- and then go back over both the newly-cast-on and the old nine.

I knit, therefore I am.

Current projects: a hat, one pair of socks, a pair of fingerless gloves, and zero sanity. Future projects: more socks, more gloves (some with fingers, even!), a tea cozy, a penguin scarf, and even less sanity.
