Casting On/Ribbing The Cuff/Knitting The Flap
What are these underneath your name and photo on the side bar of the message? Mine has Knitting The Flap and I have NO CLUE how to knit a flap of ANYTHING!! How can you change it to something more befitting? Casting On would be more like me since I keep doing that over and over .. after I frog.

They're just cutesy little categories based solely on your number of posts. Unfortunately, there is no way to customize them.

Toby, they are all references to various parts of a hand knit sock starting at the cuff. As you get more posts you move down the sock.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Ohh thank you .... he's a wonderful Bullmastiff, 23 mos, 135 lbs. named Kyro ... he was a wingnut of a puppy but toned down in May after we lost our female Kona at 23 mos to heart failure .. she pined to death over our Bull Terrier Willow who died a year ago Sept. We also have an Olde Victorian Bulldogge Keeva 7 mos old (firecracker of a dog) and a 5 mo old white deaf Bull Terrier Rona ....

Here I thought I had knit a flap and didn't know it.
