From Publishers Weekly
Continuing the warm-and-fuzzy saga begun in her popular The Friday Night Knitting Club, Jacobs stitches together another winning tale of the New York City knitting circle, more a sisterhood than a hobby group (the irascible Darwin Chiu can’t even really knit). In this installment-and it does feel like an installment-readers catch up **REMOVED FOR SPOILING THE FIRST BOOK**. The rest of the cast runs a wide gamut of ages and experience, but is easier to follow this time around, as Jacobs is more comfortable giving them more space and backstory. Pregnant, whip-smart professor Darwin and her husband, Dan, are welcoming twins; video director and single mom Lucie is coping with a hyperactive 5-year-old and a failing parent; Georgia’s old mentor, the wise Anita, begins questioning her own motives; and everyone’s stories cross paths in satisfying, organic ways. A trip to Italy provides some forward motion, and pays off in a charming denouementthat nevertheless pushes a familiar it’s-the-journey-not-the-destination message; still, this sequel is as comforting, enveloping and warm as a well-crafted afghan.

From Batty’s Girl

Much, much better than the first book, the characters grow, move, make differences that you care about.

I can pretty much guarantee that Jacobs will write more of these, however, its like each person grows a bit but there is still so much room the author is leaving for more.
