Advice du jour

Even if it seems like a wonderful idea at the time, don't try to knit your first pair of gloves on toothpicks.

Just sayin'

Once Upon A Time

which looks like it was last June, I created this blog to showcase my writing. But a change of direction pointed me to a more professional writing site also called Practice Makes. That Catherine Talley thing? It's a pseudonym. A nom de plume as it were. I am gainfully employed and wish to stay that way so it is easier to use a nom de plume than to explain why I might write things that my employer doesn't care for.

So here I was, trying to sort out all of my knitting links -- bookmarks actually -- and failing miserably when I thought "Self, blogs make good bookmarking places." So as I merrily went off to create a new blog, I figuratively slapped my forehead with my hand realizing that I had this baby sitting around. It is hereby repurposed into a fiber blog. I'll start with knitting and see where I go from there.
