Knit TwoBook - 2008
The Sequel to the Beloved #1 New York TimesBestseller The Friday Night Knitting Club The sequel to the number-one New York Timesbestseller The Friday Night Knitting Club, KNIT TWOreturns to Walker and 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 seventysomething Anita, a proposal of marriage from her sweetheart, Marty, that provokes the objections of her grown children. As the clubs projectsan afghan, baby booties, a wedding coatare pieced together, so is their understanding of the patterns underlying the stresses and joys of being mother, wife, daughter, and friend. Because it isnt the difficulty of the garment that makes you a great knitter: its the care and attention you bring to the craftas well as how you adapt to surprises.
