Friday Night Knitting Club

Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

What was this book about?

They are not just a group of women who get together on Friday Night’s to knit – they are a group of friends. What seems to be a ragtag group of people who all have some reason to be there on Fridays, end up relying on each other for support as they go through the good times and bad.

Georgia has been a single mother for many years, now Dakota, her daughter is starting to have a relationship with her father. For Georgia this relationship is bittersweet – he didn’t want Dakota in the beginning – now her ex seems to be taking over her life. Does she want a relationship with him? Even if it is just as the father of her daughter?

Cat, was Georgia’s best friend in high school but she betrayed her and they haven’t spoken in years. Cat’s bad marriage has made her claim independence. But can she find herself or will she yet again bewhat other’s want her to be?

Anita loves Georgia as if she is a daughter. Since her own husband died years before she has been alone except for this knitting store and Georgia and Dakota. Is there room in her life for another relationship?

This is just the beginning of those that are in the “Friday Night Knitting Club”.

What did you like/dislike about the book?

I enjoy this new genre of knitting books talking about women’s relationships with each other and their interaction in their own lives. It is nice to know that something as old fashioned as knitting can bring people together to work through their joy and pain.

What genre would you consider this?
