Knit Two by Kate Jacobs


This is the sequel to The Friday Night Knitting Club. The story picks up five years later. Dakota is starting college and is trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. James, her father, is trying to push her down a path she’s not interested in. Peri’s running the store, feeling frustrated and taken for granted. KC is still a big time lawyer, but now has a new hobby: smoking. Darwin and her husband are expecting twins and all that goes with it. Lucie receives the opportunity of a lifetime to go toItaly for a job. Catherine is still around, trying to find her position in the group. Anita and Marty are planning a wedding and dealing with Anita’s difficult son.

Dakota feels she’s being smothered and everyone expects her to take over the yarn store when she’s old enough. But she doesn’t want it. Everyone just assumes this is what she wants. A tantrum and disaster open everyone’s eyes. What will happen to the yarn shop?


I wasn’t too impressed with the book. From an author note in the back, it was made clear that this was only written because the fans asked. I was more interested in how Dakota’s character developed than any of the other characters. I found most of the book to be fluff and uninteresting.

No recommendation either way.
