The Friday Night Knitting Club
The Friday Night Knitting Club | Kate Jacobs
54 posts | 85 read | 22 to read
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.

This is an excellent story for knitters with an edge! Good inspiration to pick up those projects. I would say it's a COZY story, no, not gripping, cozy

Hi Littens! Sorry I‘ve been MIA lately... those newborn days, whew! I forgot how hard they can be, haha. A little bit of housekeeping:
• Today I am sending out The Butterfly Garden for #LMPBC #groupT to @the-flashley
• I am also sending Arrowood out to @shendrix413 for #whodunitthesequel
 @CrowCAH Look! I finally had a chance to teach myself how to knit! I‘m learning on this chunky yarn before I use the beautiful yarn you sent me. I love it!

BarbaraTheBibliophage Your knitting looks great. Very even! 1y

I really wanted to love this one! New York City and knitting! However, it tried to do too much. Every character but Georgia was underdeveloped. Why should I care about these other people? I did not even get a true sense of Georgia‘s daughter or her father. Additionally, the writing was quite slow in places. So, I give this one a just ok.

The most wonderful KNITTING package from @CSeydel 🎉🎉 Carrie, thank you so much! I love it all. I have always wanted to learn to knit and it was SO thoughtful of you to send something for each of my boys. I love the scarf you sent, the booties are DARLING, and my son loves the hat! I cannot wait to give knitting a try! Thanks for your tips and letter!

#MakerSwap @LibrarianRyan

CSeydel Oh I am so glad you like it! I can‘t tell you how happy I was to get matched with someone in a cold climate. 2y
aschermetz @CSeydel I love it! And I can never have too many scarves here, LOL ☃️☃️☃️ 2y
MicrobeMom Yay! Knitting! I taught myself last year after and friend bought me a kit. I found YouTube to be very helpful. I particularly like Kristen from Studio Knit. Her lessons are very easy to follow. Good luck! 2y

Daisydo That scarf is so beautiful!! 2y
CSeydel @aschermetz yeah, to be honest, I felt like a bit of a schmuck for not including better instructions, but truly YouTube is the best way to learn. It‘s how I learned, mostly. Unless you want to go to a yarn store and take a class. A book just can‘t convey the 3-D movement of the yarn like a video can. 2y

I don't have a picture but I should have posted a review.
I recently reread this book, when i discovered there is a third. In which i hope to reread the second book, so i can read the third.
Basically it is about a single mom, that owns a yarn shop. And specializes in knitting. What was once a casual meet up with regulars, friends and one determined woman hoping to finish an interesting thesis.. On a Friday night turned into so much more

dorisday This book made me want to knit . . . And I haven't knitted for 30 years 1y
bullbunny @dorisday oh wow really!!? 1y
dorisday It was the closeness of the women, sharing, bonding and stuff. 1y

I had started this audiobook in January, then the e library took it after 14 days! I couldn‘t get into it. I‘ve decided to finish books I started and abandoned, so I checked it out again. It started to pick up half way through. It‘s the tale of love lost and found, friendships found in unexpected ways, growth in dreams. Glad to have listened to it in my work commute, helped pass the time.

Dorae There are 2 more in the series. 2y

2. That one by The Beatles where they just repeat the same line over & over. Drives me 🍌🍌
3. Immediate family, yes. But there‘s only four of us

This was not a perfect book and it took me forever to get into it but I only paid 25 cent for it at the flea market so I wanted to finish it. It is a intresting story about a group of women there troubles and how they strive throughout life. Not a great read but enjoyable I may even read the sequel one day.

tpixie That's how I felt it - was kind of a cute read. I still have not read the sequel. 2y

Listened to this on audio. It's hovering between a pick and a so-so for me. I didn't enjoy the audiobook reader but I found the story to be sweet and for the most part heartwarming. Definitely more of an intense plot then I expected though. A pretty average 3-star book for this one.

This book reflected the lives of multiple woman, all with their own personal issues. On the outside every character looks and seems perfect. It shows how hard life in the big city can really be. How it takes a group of strong loyal women who have your back through it all. This really inspired me.

Just finished listening to this one. Only so-so for me. I kept thinking the book was ending but then the story would keep going for another several chapters. I also found the multiple character narratives were sometimes difficult to follow in the audiobook.
