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.
