Author's notes[edit]

3,693 miles is the distance between the fictional village of Pryor Mills, north of Toronto, Canada, and Ypres, Flanders, Belgium.


The Morse code messages knitted into the pieces of clothing are as follows. Usually they consist of purl stitches (three for a dash, one for a dot) on stocking stitch, but there's also a hat with the letters knitted in a different colour than the background.
