What a wonderful sequel to The Friday Night Knitting Club. It was wonderful to pick up 5 years later and check in with the gals of the club. KC, Peri, Dakota, Anita, Darwin, Lucie, and Catherine.

Weddings, babies, promotions, Italy, and good old fashioned girl gossip brings this book together and makes for the perfect followup to our old friends. Perfect chick lit book.

Knit Two by Kate Jacobs was like meeting up with old friends again. In short it was wonderful and I loved it! I've been a fan of Kate Jacobs since I first read The Friday Night Knitting Club which was an awesome book. This past year I read Comfort Food which I also really enjoyed. However, to find out there was a sequel to The Friday Night Knitting Club was the best news ever for me and it didn't disappoint in the least.

Again, Kate Jacobs draws you into all the characters lives and this time bec

Another wonderful story told by Kate Jacobs. Knit Two is the second book in the Friday Night Knitting Club series. Fast Forward five years and the knitting club members are still continuing their weekly get-togethers minus Georgia who is terribly missed. The members are still grieving the loss of Georgia 5 years after her death which seems reasonable to me, I quite enjoyed the fact that she remained a significant part of the story throughout the book. Readers also learn more about the l

It took me a bit longer to get into Knit Two. I really missed Georgia Walker for a while. She was such a huge part of the first book. However, there are so many other interesting things happening to the other characters that I finally got over it and began to enjoy the story.

My favorite character this time around was Georgia's friend Catherine. She definitely had the most issues to deal with. I really came to sympathize with her and I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen to her next. I

I read the Friday Night Knitting club about a year ago. It was a fun, quick read and I really enjoyed it. I felt especially close to the plot line since I am a knitter, and the story sort of centers around how knitting binds this interesting group of women together. So, fast forward to Knit Two, the sequel. It just wasn’t the same. I mean, yes, I really wanted to know what had happened to the group and I got some answers in that area, but…

It was slow to take off. I felt like I had to relive the

I expected a lot more from this book. The first one was so good I shared it with everyone. This one is set 5 yrs after the first one and they are still bemoaning the loss of their common friend. They also raised the child in this moaning, groaning, "we miss your mom" manner. At what point do you realize she's gone, you're living in the present, and the child should be raised to live in the moment, not bemoaning the fact that her mother died and no matter what they all do to keep everything "the ...more

This is the sequel to "The Friday Night Knitting Club"--which I loved. I vacillated between really not being able to get into this one and then just liking it. It picks up five years after the other one left off. I felt that it took almost 100 pages of review before the story really started to move. I get trying to put the read back up to speed--but all the retelling seemed rather prolonged.

The storyline was still good--but I missed it having very much to do with the actual knitting and their c

I really don't get all the 4- and 5-star reviews for this book. I really did not enjoy it. While the original book was enjoyable enough, even with its flaws, I really didn't find much to like about this book. Many of the events and scenarios were completely ridiculous, and totally contrived. I also didn't find it very realistic the way most of the characters were still heavily mourning their friend Georgia. I don't mean to sound callous but, with the exception of her daughter, I would think most ...more

“Seeing a patter doesn't mean you know how to put it all together. Take baby steps: don't focus on the folks whose skills are far beyond your own. When you're new to something-or you haven't tried it in a while-it can feel impossibly hard to get it right. Every misstep feels like a reason to quit. You envy everyone else who seems to know what they're doing. What keeps you going? The belief that one day you'll also be like that: Elegant. Capable. Confident. Experienced. And you can be. All you need now is enthusiasm. A little bravery. And-always-a sense of humor.” 9 likes
“It's all about getting the hand of things. Easy does it; take it easy. You'll figure everything out in time. But for right now, just keep trying. Pay attention and avoid the temptation to go further than you're ready. Talk less. And listen more.” 8 likes
