Description
There's a little yarn store in Seattle.
It's owned by Lydia Hoffman, and it represents her dream of a new life free from cancer. A life that offers a chance at love
Lydia teaches knitting to beginners, and the first class is "How to Make a Baby Blanket." Three women join. Jacqueline Donovan wants to knit something for her grandchild as a gesture of reconciliation with her daughter-in-law. Carol Girard feels that the baby blanket is a message of hope as she makes a final attempt to conceive. And Alix Townsend is knitting her blanket for a court-ordered community service project.
These four very different women, brought together by an age-old craft, make unexpected discoveries about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to friendship and more
