The Friday Night Knitting Club Paperback
by Kate Jacobs
Casting on ...It starts almost by accident: the women who buy their knitting needles and wool from Georgia's store linger for advice, for a coffee, for a chat and before they know it, every Friday night is knitting night.
Finding a pattern ...And as the needles clack, and the garments grow, the conversation moves on from patterns and yarn to life, love and everything.
These women are of different ages, from different backgrounds and facing different problems, but they are drawn together by threads of affection that prove as durable as the sweaters they knit.

Review by WomblingStar
Enjoyed the book until the last few chapters which were so unrealistic that it spoilt the whole thing for me. Problem of having too much knowledge.
Review by van-vinos
Loved this book. Unexpectedly gave me much food for thought. A really surprising read. I couldn't wait to read the sequel
Review by AriadneAranea
A bunch of misfit women come together through knitting: what's not to like? Overall, it was a great premise, not badly written, and the plot more or less worked. It hasn't exactly changed my life, but it certainly beat anything that might have been on TV.My main gripe is that there were too many background characters - lots of people mentioned as part of the back story to one of the minor characters, but who don't add a lot to either the characterisation or the plot. As a result, too many reminders of the creative-writing teacher's mantra: "show, don't tell!"
