Sarah, the production editor on Yarn Forward, just totally made my day. Long story made short — we were discussing deadlines with our tech editor, and had accused Sarah, jokingly, of trying to pit us against each other in some kind of editorial deathmatch. I said to her:
“I’m going to call you Eris from now on. Next thing you know you’ll be dropping an apple inscribed ÎºÎ±Î»Î»Î¯ÏƒÏ„á¿ƒ in between us just to watch the fireworks.”
And this morning, my inbox greets me with:
“Bless me with Athena, there’s no meaner, she’s the best/ When we hit the roughest seas we’ll need all we can get.”
Your role on Yarn Forward: foreseen by Sleater-Kinney
Things you did not know: the editorial staff are clearly big, big, big mythology dorks. (Wait, you already knew that about me, haven’t I mentioned I dressed as Athena one year for Halloween after I saw Clash of the Titans?)
Knitting and mythology: two things I adore.
