it was ok

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 whole first book again just to get to the good stuff. Then, the plot went way off center. It focused more on outside characters that I didn’t care so much about in the first book, and totally ignored others. And the last reason I was disappointed, there wasn’t any focus on knitting! They did sort of discuss knitting a little, but it wasn’t as much of a core issue as it was in the first book. The characters didn’t even spend any time knitting together in this book.

So, read it if you were really in love with the first book. Don’t even try to read it if you haven’t read the original. You will be terribly confused and it won’t be worth it. Just read the original and check out some other better knitting fiction books (like Debbie Macomber’s Blossom Street series) to give you inspiration.
