Knit the Season [With Earbuds] (Friday Night Knitting Club #3)
Not only are the holidays are just around the corner, the women who knit at Manhattan's Walker & Daughter have an extra reason to celebrate: there's a wedding planned for New Year's Day. In the meantime, college-age Dakota Walker is working t...more
Knit the Season is focused on Dakota this time, which is nice. If you have read the other two books in the series, you do get caught up with several of the characters and what they have been up to in recent...more
Jacobs is a talented writer with a unique ability to create flawed characters that are so engaging and real. That said - this book was a huge disappointment. Full of preachy cliches about family love, complete with the now-college-aged Dakota spouting off sage advice out of nowhere (the cause of much eye-rolling and skimming on my part) - every single scene c...more
This book was more tolerable than the last book, however there were a few things that could have been changed. I'm happy to see that the writer dropped the racial issues with Dakota, that was really annoying in the second book.
There was a bit too much opinions from the friends of the group...more
A great deal of the story involves reminiscences about Georgia, the joint owner of a knitting shop. For someone who has been dead for six years there is a lot of print devoted to her...which wou...more
Blurb: a return to the characters of Friday Night Knitting Club, with Dakota nearly all grown up. A pass-the-time kind of novel that surprisingly, brought me to tears.
Longer version: I listened to the audiobook of the first in the series, and it wasn't my favorite book, but was a nice little story of a young mother and her friends. I selected this audiobook, mostly because I thought it would be a nice unchallenging little listen. And, for the most part it was. It doesn't require grea...more
I read the whole thing, but it took over a week because I was just not getting caught up in the characters like I had before. It was kind of like watching the re-make of 'The Women', in that you expect great things because you like all the actresses a...more
The story revolves mainly around Dakota Walker, who has left college to attend culinary school, while also keeping up with things at the yarn shop of her late mother, Walker & Daughter. She has help in the person of Peri, who manages things day-to-day, as well as from the women in the Friday Night Knitting Club, and Dakota's father as well....more
Antes de leer este libro leí sus reseñas y la mayoría eran malas así que lo empecé sin mucha expectativa pero es como si hubiera vivido el libro.
Simplemente sencillo y sentimental, todo un chicklit
I am going to try Comfort Food and see if I enjoy that better.
Here you have that same emotion, in book form.
The book was not as Christmas-y as the title led me to expect, but it was a very good read.
The character focus in this book is Dakota, the daughter of Georgia who was the main character of book 1. Georgia has been dead for a few years now and everyone is still trying to find their footing after her loss. Dakota splits her time between the Knit Shop and Culinary...more
Its a few years down the road and Dakota is busy in pastry school and running her late mother's knitting shop. She lives with her dad and is growing closer to him, but can't always decide what she wants from family. She h...more
Tis the season to knit and be merry! The Friday Night Knitting Club are back for this festive third instalment. Dakota Walker, the co-owner of the Walker and Daughter knitting store, is now twenty and in school working towards becoming a pastry chef. Christmas is the time for family to come together, but Dakota is offered a prestigious Christmas internship that would mean missing family Christmas in Scotland. While Anita is tryi...more
I really liked how the author added the "Georgia" thoughts in the book. I thought that was an interesting way of keeping Georgia alive.
This line was thought provoking for me..."There's something magical about the way you can get to know someone better even after they're gone." I never really thought about this, until I read that line. I...more
The third book in the Friday Night Knitting Club wrapped up those questions that lingered from book one and book two. I am a huge fan of not spoiling the story for anyone, so if you liked/loved the first two books this is a must read! If you have not read the series and are picking this book up first the story can be a stand alone.
Knit the Season has some flash backs that do not retell the...more
Definitely the weakest of the lot, but it's a sweet Christmas story (starting just before Thanksgiving and ending just after New Years Eve) and a quick read, so perfect for a lazy Christmas Day morning.
It's linked quite closely to "Knit Two" and ties up a lot of the loose ends from that book. Some elements were a tad too good to be true, but "it's Christmas", and I can completely understand wanting an extra doze of 'feel good' for that.
"Knit the Season" is mostly about Anita, P...more
Kate grew up near Vancouver, British Columbia, in the scenic and delightfully named town of Hope (pop. 6,184). It’s an area filled with friends and family and Kate loves to visit. Back then, of course, it was tremendously boring, as only home...more
