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.
- "The desire to keep everything as it had once been—to freeze time—remained very strong among the group of friends." In what ways did the ladies of the Friday Night Knitting Club manage to keep things as they were? Have the changes made after Georgia's death been a positive or a negative for the members of the club?
