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.
Kate Jacobs follows up her bestselling A FRIDAY NIGHT KNITTING CLUB about Georgia Walker's Manhattan knitting store with KNIT TWO. The store's multi-generational knitting club has some new projects that reflect what the members are confronting in their personal lives (divorce, babies, romance, marriage), and the story nicely stitches together all these women's stories.
