Juggling the demands of her yarn shop and single-handedly raising a teenage daughter has made Georgia Walker grateful for her Friday Night Knitting Club. Her friends are happy to escape their lives too, even for just a few hours. But when Georgia's ex suddenly reappears, demanding a role in their daughter's life, her whole world is shattered.
Luckily, Georgia's friends are there, sharing their own tales of intimacy, heartbreak, and miracle making. And when the unthinkable happens, these women will discover that what they've created isn't just a knitting club: it's a sisterhood.

I recently finished reading "Friday Night Knitting Club" by Kate Jacobs for my book club.
This soon-to-be-a-Julia Roberts-movie was a very light, interesting read.
I hesitated at first, due to the title (it gave me visions of rocking chairs and itchy sweaters) , but as you "can't judge a book by its cover" - I dove in - and was pleasantly surprised! Instead of needle-talk the book focused on real life issues, and has a pleasant blend of caracters, who meet each Friday, like any other group of women might - though I sometimes felt that some caracters were unnessary to the story, together their stores blended well for a good read - some may say like a knitted blanket!
