Summary

Summary

The sequel to the beloved #1 New York Times bestseller The Friday Night Knitting Club

Knit Two returns to Walker & Daughter, the Manhattan knitting store founded by Georgia Walker and her young daughter, Dakota. Dakota is now an eighteen-year-old freshman at NYU, running the little yarn shop part time with help from the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club.

Drawn together by the sense of family the club has created, the knitters rely on one another 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 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Continuing the warm-and-fuzzy saga begun in her popular The Friday Night Knitting Club, Jacobs stitches together another winning tale of the New York City knitting circle, more a sisterhood than a hobby group….the cast runs a wide gamut of ages and experience, but is easier to follow this time around, as Jacobs is more comfortable giving them more space and backstory….A trip to Italy provides some forward motion, and pays off in a charming denouement that nevertheless pushes a familiar it’s-the-journey-not-the-destination message; still, this sequel is as comforting, enveloping and warm as a well-crafted afghan.” Publishers Weekly
“Jacobs’ sequel delves into the lives of characters first introduced in the popular The Friday Night Knitting Club….On the surface, the story is about what has happened to these women who formed deep bonds of friendship while learning to knit. Yet it really investigates grief and how each of the characters learns to come to terms with the loss of Georgia….The novel’s humor and pathos manage to make the women and especially Dakota very real and enjoyable to know. Knitting is not completely forgotten, as readers are left with a sense of how the craft has calmed these souls as they journey through their individual stories of acceptance and personal growth….Definitely a required purchase for all public libraries.” Library Journal
“Reading Jacobs’ second knitting novel is as warming and cheering as visiting old friends.” Booklist
“For legions of readers awaiting a reunion with their friends from the bestselling novel The Friday Night Knitting Club, novelist Kate Jacobs’ warmhearted sequel, Knit Two, is certain to be a cozy companion on a blustery winter night…Elder love is a subject rarely explored in popular fiction, and in Knit Two, Jacobs captures the bittersweet surprise of late-in-life romance.” BookPage
