“Open Tuesday to Saturday,What is it all about? The Friday Night Knitting Club is about a group of women who meet once a week at a New York City yarn shop to knit and to bond. The shop’s owner, Georgia Walker, is a single mother struggling to raise her daughter, Dakota, when Dakota’s father suddenly reappears in their lives. Georgia’s friends--Anita, Peri, Darwin, Lucie, and K.C.--help her cope while dealing with issues of their own. These are their stories...
10 A.M. -- 8 P.M. No exceptions!
The hours of Walker and Daughter: Knitters were clearly displayed in multicolored letters on a white sandwich board placed just so at the top of their stair landing. Though Georgia Walker--usually preoccupied with closing out the till and picking up the strays of yarn on the floor--rarely made a move to turn the lock until at least eight fifteen... or later.”
- I liked Georgia’s attitude toward James, Dakota’s father. She didn’t immediately forgive him (which would have been terribly unrealistic), but she didn’t turn bitter either. I though Jacobs did a good job balancing this emotional reaction. I’m not sure I would have been as mature ;o).
- Warning: Have a box of tissues handy toward the end of the book - that’s all I’m saying...
- I’ve put all of the other books written by Kate Jacobs on my TBR list ;o).
- Kate Jacobs’ Website
- The paperback edition that I have has a knitting pattern for a simple scarf and recipe for oatmeal, blueberry & orange muffins (that sound just perfectly yummy) in the back.
- There is also a reading group guide. And the book would make for a great book club discussion. Kate Jacobs will even call into your book club and discuss with you - see her website for details.
- This series also includes Knit Two and Knit the Season (out November 2009).
- Kate Jacobs has also written another book outside of this series called Comfort Food (its cover makes me hungry ;o)).
