1. I'm having a sale in my Etsy shop, and two of my books are discounted with coupons over at Smashwords. Follow the links for more info.
2. I'm currently knitting the mittens mentioned in the excellent book Code Name Verity, by Elizabeth Wein, and referenced at the back of the book. Here is a link to the pattern at the V&A museum in England - scroll through the choices of 1940's knitting patterns until you come to "Mittens for Women."
