I'd just finished knitting a baby blanket. I'd posted pictures of the completed blanket to my web site.
Then I got an email telling me to 'rip it all out and start over.'
I somehow thought the email had something to do with my recently completed baby blanket.
It took a bit but I finally realized the author was referring to the first thing I ever knit. I included the date on the story, 1996. After 8 years, I've learned a few things about knitting. I won't be repeating the mistakes of that initial blanket.
