Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

Wow. Well this was a book that had me stay in bed all morning to finish it, I was that in to the characters.

This is not your typical fluffly chick lit novel – it’s a story of friendships, motherhood and love.

Walker and Daughter is Georgia Walker’s yarn shop  on the Upper West Side. She’s raising 12 year old Dakota alone but with much support from her good friend and mentor Anita. The Friday Nigh Knitting Club is improvised by some of Georgia’s regulars who need tips on knitting and end up finding much more.

Georgia is central to the story but the other supporting characters are fully drawn. And where if this was the typical chick lit book, it would’ve stopped at page 229. But instead the next 100 pages take you deeper in and show the reader the power of friendships and how sometimes the most powerful support group is the family we create.
