Synopses & Reviews
The sequel to the beloved #1 New York Times bestseller, The Friday Night Knitting Club.
At the Manhattan knitting store founded by Georgia Walker, the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club?including Georgia?s daughter Dakota, now a college freshman?continue to rely on each other for help, even as they struggle with new challenges: for Catherine, finding love after divorce; for Darwin, the hope for a family; for Lucie, being both a single mom and a caregiver for her elderly mother; and for seventy something Anita, a proposal of marriage from her sweetheart, Marty, that provokes the objections of her grown children. As the club?s projects?an afghan, baby booties, a wedding coat?are pieced together, so is their understanding of the patterns underlying the stresses and joys of being a mother, wife, daughter, and friend. Because it isn?t the difficulty of the garment that makes you a great knitter: it?s the care and attention you bring to the craft?as well as how you adapt to surprises.
Knit Two returns to the Manhattan knitting store Walker; Daughter five years after the death of the store's owner, Georgia Walker. Georgia's daughter, Dakota, is now an eighteen-year-old freshman at NYU, and running the knitting store part-time with help from the members of The Friday Night Knitting Club. Drawn together by their love for Dakota and the sense of family the club provides, each knitter struggles with her own challenges. Catherine searches for love following a divorce; for Darwin, it's newborn twins; Lucie is a single mom and the caregiver for her elderly mother; and for seventy-something Anita, her marriage to Marty over her grown children's objections is a problem.
Jacobs' follow-up to the popular novel "The Friday Night Knitting Club" stitches together another winning tale of the New York City knitting circle, more a sisterhood than a hobby group.
