My daughter recommended All the Light We Cannot See and, enjoying WW2 novels as I do, I downloaded it to listen to while I play with needles and yarn. The novel is set in two places – Paris and a mining town in Germany. The story is about a blind girl in Paris whose father is a master locksmith in a museum of natural history and, an orphan boy skilled in building and fixing radios. The girl and her father flee Paris when the Germans invade. The orphan boy wins a place in the brutal academy for Hitler Youth. Their stories are told in tandem and give glimpses of war time living from a very unique perspective. I have a sneaking suspicion the author is deftly interweaving these two lives. I’ll find out soon!
Fresh off the needles is one Vanilla Latte Sock. One down, one more to go. On a recent trip I wanted to pack as light as possible and restricted myself to a little knitting bag with some Kaffe Fassett yarn in it to knit a pair of mindless socks. Amazingly enough, I finished the sock and cast on for its mate. I guess that is what happens when you limit yourself to one project at a time. 😉
