The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

The Friday Night Knitting Club


The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

Casting on . . . It starts almost by accident: the women who buy their knitting needles and wool from Georgia's store linger for advice, for a coffee, for a chat and before they know it, every Friday night is knitting night. Finding a pattern . . . And as the needles clack, and the garments grow, the conversation moves on from patterns and yarn to life, love and everything. These women are of different ages, from different backgrounds and facing different problems, but they are drawn together by threads of affection that prove as durable as the sweaters they knit. The Friday Night Knitting Club - don't you want to join?


Funny, sad and effortlessly hip. * thelondonpaper * Thoroughly entertaining . . . with an unexpected twist * Prima * A colourful yarn. * Woman and Home * The mother of them all. The Friday Night Knitting Club celebrates the power of women's independence * New Statesman * The fluffy escapism of this right-on read is bound to hook you in * Eve * Have a tissue box ready for this emotional rollercoaster of a book * She * Beautifully written with a fantastic cast of women . . . worth taking a duvet day for . . . you won't want to put this down * Heat * This is a very funny and moving book about life and friendships, and although it might not change your life it will possibly change the way you think about knitting. * First *
