The Friday Night Knitting Club

The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

Is knitting making a comeback in the younger generations??  Some would argue yes.  There are two or three of the 20-30 age range who go to the library knitting meetings regularly.

The Friday Night Knitting Club offers a glimpse into the everyday life of single parent, Georgia Walker, and her daughter Dokota.  Georgia runs a knitting shop in New York City.  What started as a costumer here and there staying late after shop hours to discuss knitting projects or life in general evolved into a weekly gathering of a handful of funny, caring, you-are-gonna-love women who come to depend on each other for more than knitting and purling advice.

I really liked the novel.  Even if you aren't a knitter if you like Chick Lit I predict you will enjoy The Friday Night Knitting Club.  One word of advice though:  It has a interesting twist very late in the story, so don't go reading the back of the sequel (like I did) before you are done with the first.  I was sad I ruined the ending for myself.
