Knit Two Paperback
by Kate Jacobs
Old Yarns It is five years since the members of The Friday Night Knitting Club bonded during divorce, job loss, romance, birth - and the sudden death of their dear friend, Georgia.
But the Walker and Daughter knitting store on Manhattan's Upper West Side is still going strong.
New Patterns Drawn together by their love for Georgia's daughter, 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 single mum and carer for her elderly mother, and for Anita, marriage to her sweetheart over the objections of her grown-up children.
A love letter to the power of female friendship and, of course, knitting, Knit Two is entertainment with heart.

Review by woolenthusiast
An enjoyable light read. You need to have read the first one before this otherwise it spoils the story for you. I found this in a charity shop and didn't expect it to be very good as it seemed to be just tapping into the knitting market but it has a good story line with interesting characters. I wanted to know what had happened to the characters after the end of the first book.
Review by wyvernfriend
While this is billed as knit-lit it really is less about the knitting (actually sometimes the knitting seems a bit superflous to the plot) and more about the women and how they're coping with the events of the last book. It's five years later and things have moved on, some of the characters haven't quite moved on and are still stuck in a bit of a rut.There's a lot going on with the characters and it seems like Jacobs didn't want to leave any of them out of the fun so occasionally things get quite complicated and I sometimes wished that the focus would return to a single character for a while.It's readable but I didn't find it all that special. In fact reading it felt like eating a lot of cheap chocolate, good at the time but a bad taste afterwards.

The sequel to the Friday Night Knitting club. Not as good as the first one, but still enjoyable. It tied up all the loose ends from the first book well.
