My first book and project of 2018. I picked up All the light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr (along with a couple of other books) at the library just before Christmas and I finally got around to starting it at the weekend. Set during World War II, the story is told from the point of view of Marie-Laure, a blind French girl and Werner, a German orphan destined to work in the mines but thrown into the notice of Hitler youth and eventually the army. I'm only about a third of the way through but I'm enjoying it so far.
On my needles is a pair of Maize fingerless mitts, a request made by a friend of my sister. It's a super quick pattern, knit in worsted weight yarn. The pattern is part of Tin Can Knits Simple Collection and includes sizes from toddler to adult L in both full mittens and fingerless mitts.
