Summary: There's a little yarn shop on Blossom Street in Seattle. It's owned by Lydia Hoffman, and it represents her dream of a new life free from cancer... A life that offers a chance at love...
Lydia teaches knitting to beginners, and the first class is How To Make a Baby Blanket." Three woman join. Jacqueline Donovan wants to knit something for her grandchild as a gesture of reconciliation with her daughter-in-law. Carol Girard feels that the baby blanket is a message of hope as she makes a final attempt to conceive. And Alix Townsend is knitting her blanket for a court ordered community service project.
These four very different woman, brought together by an age-old craft, make unexpected discoveries- about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to friendship and more...
My review: I did really enjoy this book, once it reached the middle. In my opinion the beginning just really dragged on, and only got exciting towards the middle. It is a really good story though, about how all different types of woman can become close, no matter your age or background. I also felt like the book was sort of predictable.
