Publisher's Summary

Following the beloved number-one New York Times best seller The Friday Night Knitting Club is this charming story of sisterhood.

At the Manhattan knitting store founded by Georgia Walker, the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club - including Georgia’s college-age daughter, Dakota - rely on each other for help, even 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 70-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 a 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....

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.

Don’t bother!

I couldn’t get past the 3rd chapter, the characters are flat, uninteresting, & improbable. There didn’t seem to any plot developing so I stopped listening & returned the book. I read some of the other reviews & wished I had read them before buying the book, most of them felt the same way I did.
There are plenty of other books out there that have interesting characters that actually talk about knitting & yarn.

Regret Central

The double standard of a strong female front, juxtaposed with endless neurotic second guesses, self recrimination and doubt. it becomes heavy and dull. The storyline is ok, yet forced at times. I spotted the "twist" before it came. James putters off into the ether...the reader gives him and Peri torally wrong accents. All the whining doesn't make it worth it. They could have eased up on the non stop neurotic flow. The author needs to read the Power Of Now and then do an epilogue!!! 😅

Good second book

I was nervous at first to learn this story continued, but was wonderfully surprised. I can relate to the characters in a completely different way than I did in the first novel. Great follow up, hope to learn more of the club in the future!

Delightful Read...

Delightful read for non-knitters and knitters alike. Balanced combination of humor and tragedy to make for an interesting story.

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.
