Drawn together by their love for Dakota and the sense of family the club provides, each knitter is struggling with new challenges: for Catherine, finding love after divorce, for Darwin, newborn twins, for Lucie, being both a single mom and caregiver for her elderly mother, and for 70-something Anita, marriage to her sweetheart Marty over the objections of her grown children.
As Kate Jacobs returns to the world of Walker & Daughter, she's once again keyed into many of the stresses and joys of being a mother, wife, daughter and friend. Every woman who picks up this work will see themselves in its characters - the very thing that made The Friday Night Knitting Club such a huge word-of-mouth success.
A true love letter to the power of women's friendships, and, of course, knitting, Knit Two is entertainment with a heart.

This sequel to Friday Night Knitting Club is a sickeningly sweet reading of the book. The first five chapters are all review of the characters in the first book. The author clearly has gone into way too much explicit detail of each character's background. The characters could have been brought back in a much less obtrusive retelling of the first story.
I really enjoyed the Friday Night Knitting Club. I found Knit Two really touching. Yes, this is a sequal and yes, things are wrapped nicely here. But it is also an excellent story of mourning and moving forward after a major loss. Georgia is missed by everyone, including me, but she's alive in spirit. You feel her in how she profoundly affected each and every character.
This story touched me especially since I've recently lost someone very important in my life. It has comforted me in my mourning process.
May it do similarly for you.
