A charming and moving novel about female friendship and the experiences that knit us together-even when we least expect it. Walker and Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club was started by some of Georgia's regulars, who gather once a week to work on their latest projects and to chat-and occasionally clash-over their stories of love, life, and everything in between. Georgia has her hands full, juggling the demands of running the store and raising her spunky teen daughter, Dakota, by herself. Thank goodness for Anita, her mentor and dear friend, and the rest of the members of the knitting club-who are just as varied as the skeins of yarn in the shop's bins. There's Peri, a prelaw student turned handbag designer; Darwin, a somewhat aloof feminist grad student; and Lucie, a petite, quiet woman who's harboring some secrets of her own. However, unexpected changes soon throw these women's lives into disarray, and the shop's comfortable world gets shaken up like a snow globe. James, Georgia's ex, decides that he wants to play a larger role in Dakota's life-and possibly Georgia's as well. Cat, a former friend from high school, returns to New York as a rich Park Avenue wife and uneasily renews her old bond with Georgia. Meanwhile, Anita must confront her growing (and reciprocated) feelings for Marty, the kind neighborhood deli owner. And when the unthinkable happens, they realize what they've created: not just a knitting club, but a sisterhood

The Friday Night Knitting Club is a lovely little word-of-mouth novel which seems to have been written just for the book group crowd. What doesn't The Friday Night Knitting Club have, to make it so perfect for discussion? There's a singular woman in the starring role, quirky, smart, gorgeous in a no...

It's Debbie Macomber territory here, among others who have latched onto the growing trend for knitting and knit related fiction. I've seen it both described as Chicknit and KnitLit, this is closer to Chick than Lit. Not a bad read about a diverse range of women who find a space for themselves in a ...

I like that there is something as simple as a knitting hobby that would connect people with very different backgrounds. I thought this ...
