Dakota Walker is part of the Walker & Daughter knitting store. Since her mother’s passing, the business has gone to her. She knows summer is hard on a yarn shop, even tougher on her during this time.
Catherine has an antique shop with an elegant blend of antiques and collectables. She is delighted to finally be free from her ex-husband, often wearing a necklace with the letter, ‘D,’ signifying divorce.
Darwin is preparing for delivery of her twins, Cady and Stanton. She keeps a hidden jar of talcum powder so she can occasionally take a sniff of the lovely smell to savor the old-timely baby scent.
Lucie, a single mother and caregiver for her elderly mother, loves her mother dearly, but her brothers decided it was necessary to remove the car from their mother.
Georgia Walker, the designer and founder of the Friday Night Knitting Club, left the business to daughter, Dakota. She misses her mother, as well as her friends. Catherine misses Georgia, who always saw the good in her. Darwin wishes she could share her imminent motherhood with Georgia. Lucie hates the thought of her mother aging since she was once a firecracker. Anita, who is in her seventies, prepares for her wedding to Marty, something her children seem to oppose. The women share lovely thoughts of Georgia. As a motherless daughter, Dakota often considers walking past the store and keep going. The thought of selling enters her mind. With Georgia gone, the circle of friends try to find strength to get through any obstacle the same way Georgia would.
Knit Two is an uplifting read that brings joy and love. There were times I could share and reflect, not only with Dakota, but the other women in the group. I thought the part with Darwin and the talcum powder was touching. I could almost smell the heavenly baby scent. It brought back memories when I was expecting with my girls. Kate Jacobs pens a read full of inspirations that extends deep into the heart. It was fascinating reading about the ups and downs of each of the women, especially Catherine, and the situations they face daily. Whether young or old, I think anyone will benefit dearly by reading this story of friendships, love and deep devotion that extends through the ages.
