I recently started a Twitter account for Entangled – come find me under EntangledDesigns if it please you! – and did what any red-blooded tweeter would do and “followed” a ton of other knitters, as well as some family and a few famous people whom I thought might be interesting or amusing.
One such famous person was Robin McKinley, beloved author of fine books like The Blue Sword and Deerskin and Door in the Hedge and The Outlaws of Sherwood. I’ve been reading her books since I was a young adult and, like most authors, she was mostly a name on a cover. A name I was always happy to see and an assurance that good things lay within. Of course, I have small children (plus husband) and at least two jobs additionally so I am not at all current with her oeuvre. Or anyone’s oeuvre.
Quite unexpectedly, amidst all the knitting tweets, came a tweet from McKinley… about knitting.
Just like in her books, she is so funny! So real! Read it here:
You know what this means, don’t you?
Coolest. Author. Ever.
