rabck from sweetsangria; reminded me of Debbie Macomber's blossom street series. The book interweaves Georgia's single mom & knitting shop owner's life, with the lives of several women who become the core of the Friday Night knitting club, that's more women's circle friendship than getting any actual knitting done!

Will be re-reading for Book Club next month. ( )

The main focus of the book is on the owner of the knitting shop, should change the name of the book. The club isn't that important.

Single Mother(white) raising a half white half black daughter, and the father comes back after 13 years.

The ending is unexpected. Also, like the random knitting tips/facts. ( )

Not bad. It was totally predictable though. I don't really like stories where the main character dies. ( )

A very powerful story of friendships among a diverse group of women in New York City. This is not Debbie Macomber in New York - the story is less sentimental in ways I have trouble articulating. The characters are true, their lives easy and hard in realistic ways, and there's pain. I'll admit I cried. But it was an excellent story and, like one reviewer noted, it made me want to knit.

Book description
A group of plucky, crafty women in contemporary NYC meet at Manhattan yarn shop every Friday night to share knitting techniques and personal dramas. While the characters are not particularly well developed, the knitting details are interesting. Sadly, this story takes a melodramatic, tragic turn at the end precluding using the novel for a light, fun, "brain candy" recommendation. ljh 11/13/09

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425219097, Paperback)

The New York Times bestselling sensation that's "Steel Magnolias set in Manhattan" (USA Today)-now in paperback.

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.
