Publisher's Summary

Knit Two returns to the Manhattan knitting store Walker & Daughter five years after the death of the store's owner, Georgia Walker. Georgia's daughter Dakota is now an 18 year old freshman at NYU, running the knitting store part-time with the help of the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club. Drawn together by their love for Dakota and the sense of family the club provides, each knitter is struggling with new challenges: for Catherine, finding love after divorce, for Darwin, newborn twins, for Lucie, being both a single mom and caregiver for her elderly mother, and for 70-something Anita, marriage to her sweetheart Marty over the objections of her grown children.As Kate Jacobs returns to the world of Walker & Daughter, she's once again keyed into many of the stresses and joys of being a mother, wife, daughter and friend. Every woman who picks up this work will see themselves in its characters - the very thing that made The Friday Night Knitting Club such a huge word-of-mouth success. A true love letter to the power of women's friendships, and, of course, knitting, Knit Two is entertainment with a heart.

Disappointing

I have only completed half of this recording, but I just can't take it anymore. The storyline itself reads more like a character blog. There's no richness to their development and I didn't feel like I could connect with any of these characters as I did with The Friday Night Knitting Club. The text is very choppy - no eloquence to Kate's writing this time. I have really struggled to get half way through. Additionally, and maybe more important is the terrible narration. The male characters are made to sound like Barney Rubble and the female characters are over dramatized. I found that this reading very much distracted me most of the time although from what I can't be sure. I do not plan to finish this one.

Knit Two

Was interesting to see what happens to these characters, but the book seems so passive. There is a lot of narrative of what the characters are thinking - or their circumstances - but not as much smart dialogue as in the first.
I was disappointed.
