I just finished reading this book. I had already read The Friday night Knitting Club, and loved it, but I think this book was better. The descriptions of the characters were so much more in depth. I loved how the main character Mary learned how to knit something new and also dealt with her greif through each member of the knitting circle telling her their own story of grief and what it was that brought them to the circle themselves.
I would reccomend this book to anyone. Even if you aren't a knitter!

    Not everyone who knits has a tragic story...

    But you wouldn't know it from this book. This is more a serious of short stories loosely oven together with yarn than a novel. It was entertaining, but not as enthralling as some seem to think. And as an avid knitter, I've never seen " knit two together" abbreviated as "k2 to g," but rather "k2tog." The former doesn't even make sense, but then, neither did much of this bbook.

    A reviewer

    Everyone in this book had a depressing story. It is understandable that main character had a sad store, but it would have been nice to have some good news along with all the bad
