Publisher's Summary

Knit Two returns to the Manhattan knitting store Walker & Daughter five years after the death of the store's owner, Georgia Walker. Georgia's daughter Dakota is now an 18 year old freshman at NYU, running the knitting store part-time with the help of the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club.

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.

    "Disappointing"

    I have only completed half of this recording, but I just can't take it anymore. The storyline itself reads more like a character blog. There's no richness to their development and I didn't feel like I could connect with any of these characters as I did with The Friday Night Knitting Club. The text is very choppy - no eloquence to Kate's writing this time. I have really struggled to get half way through. Additionally, and maybe more important is the terrible narration. The male characters are made to sound like Barney Rubble and the female characters are over dramatized. I found that this reading very much distracted me most of the time although from what I can't be sure. I do not plan to finish this one.

    "Knit Two"

    Was interesting to see what happens to these characters, but the book seems so passive. There is a lot of narrative of what the characters are thinking - or their circumstances - but not as much smart dialogue as in the first.
    I was disappointed.

    "not so predictable sequel"

    I very much enjoyed the sequel probably more so than The Friday Night Knitting Club because I had the ending ruined by reading a review on here! Anyway, on a picky note I was bothered that Peri's voice was different in this recording. She sounded very much like James and she kept Dakota's voice so very whiny but these are not the author's fault. I enjoyed that everything was wrapped up but it seemed very much like it was a checklist about what happened to everyone. Overall I enjoyed it though. I am not too picky about books as long as they are believable and keep my attention. I missed Georgia as much as the characters did!

    "Really Disappointed"

    I am a big fan of the Friday Night Knitting Club, and was excited to read/listen to the sequel. I couldn't have been more disappointed. This book failed me both in writing and narration.

    I found the narration irritating and the characters annoying. For example, it seemed to me that Dakota's character aged in the book but was read in an excessively whiny voice. I felt very little sympathy for the characters, whose growth over the years seemed minimal.

    Truth to tell, I found all of the characters I loved in the first book almost unbearable in this one. It's a shame.

    "A Great Continuation of a Great Story"

    A great continuation of the first novel. It was interesting to see how the characters progressed after the first novel. A great story

    "A poorly used credit"

    I read the first book about the Friday Night Knitting Club and looked forward to hearing the sequel while I did my knitting. It was trite and predictable. My credit could have been better used. The narrator did a good job with the material, however.

    "Enjoyable but not as great as the first"

    I did enjoy this read and I don't regret purchasing it but there were a few plot and audio issues that I had. First, it became VERY annoying to listen throughout 75% of this book how everyone relied so much on Georgia and how their life had ceased to be anything without her even 5 years later. It was very unrealistic. Yes, she was a great character but for people to be this crippled?! The plot was just too overdramatized.

    I was also throughly disturbed at the change in voice for Perry. In the first book she had a French accent and was presented as very European, this book, she has a southern accent and you discover she's black?!

    There was less knitting in this book but there were some patterns offered at the end. The author was trying to delve deeper, I guess, with these characters and less about what the first book was based on, knitting. It was a good continuation but I was a little let down by the tone and movement of this book.

    "I love this series!"

    "Not for me."

    While I found the first book enjoyable, the sequal to the Friday Night Knitting Club was just a chore.The sigular stories seem too seperate, the charactors are overly whiney and selfih and the middle just gets trashy.I had to stop half way through becasue it had just gotten to be too much.

    "KNIT TWO"

    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.
