Editorial Reviews

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 five years after the unexpected, book-capping death of club leader (and knitting shop owner Georgia Walker. Georgia's 18-year-old Dakota is at NYU, discovering her first love, while her father James and Georgia's best friend Catherine are still coming to terms. 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 Booklist

Jacobs’ follow-up to the popular novel The Friday Night Knitting Club (2007) opens five years after Georgia Walker’s tragic death from ovarian cancer. Her daughter, Dakota, is  now a freshman at NYU, and Georgia’s former employee, Peri, is running Georgia’s yarn shop, Walker and Daughter. The group Georgia formed, the Friday Night Knitting Club, lives on in her absence despite how different all of the members are. Seventy-eight-year-old Anita is planning her wedding to deli owner Marty, despite opposition from her children. Serious professor Darwin is dealing with first-time motherhood and is frustrated that her best friend, Lucie, isn’t around to help. Lucie is trying to juggle her career as a producer with caring for her aging mother and difficult daughter. Georgia’s best friend, Catherine, is reassessing her life and her failed relationships. Reading Jacobs’ second knitting novel is as warming and cheering as visiting old friends. News of a forthcoming movie version of the first book will increase demand. --Kristine Huntley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Customer Reviews

I hope for a third installment in this series.
Maureen Ann OMalley
I bought this book the first day it went on sale and will probably buy at least one more copy to give as a Christmas present.
Tyler Hewson
This time around the characters have less development, and the story is predictable.

I was so excited to find this book, but am very glad I borrowed it from the library, rather than purchasing it for my collection. This book is nowhere near as satisfying as its predecessor, The Friday Night Knitting Club. The relationships were much less developed and quite contrived this time around. There was no depth to any of the characters or their interactions. The ending read like a 4th grader's attempts at a first "real" story; just a couple of sentences about each character to wrap up loose ends.

Knit Two is not nearly as good as Friday Night Knitting Club, though I do appreciate the continuation of Anita, Cat, Dakota, Darwin, Lucie, etc. Even where it fall short, I think Knit Two is a great empowering book. It would make a great book club read. I can't wait for Knit the Season to come out. Over all, I really like Kate Jacobs work.

I loved the Friday Night Knitting Club and the stories of the characters. Kate Jacobs writing just flows and it is so easy to get into the characters. I was very happy there was a sequel and I could escape in the story again. I also enjoyed her other book, Comfort Food.

Format: Hardcover
I haven't finished reading this book yet, but nearly halfway through it...I'm just sick of it. I have just realized that I'm not reading this book out of enjoyment at all, but just to finish it. The sad thing is I've already downloaded to audiobook for Knit the Season.

The most annoying thing about this book (so far, since I'm not done) is that for, I kid you not, the first EIGHT chapters all you hear about is Georgia. Georgia Georgia Georgia. I miss Georgia, she was my best friend, she was a great mother, she ran the store so well and this and that and blah blah blah. I felt like screaming at the characters "She's been dead for five years! Move on with your lives!"

At least with the first book there was an interesting plot and some action going on, Georgia's long lost best friend and long lost baby-daddy arrive and around the same time and she has to cope with the emotional joys and stresses and at the same time Catherine is dealing with her pending divorce with Adam. Nothing like that in this book. Just a boring book about the boring lives of far too many characters that continue to mope and whine for 320 pages. As far as I can see this book is just the result of Kate Jacobs taking advantage of the fact that the first book was so popular that her readers will buy the second even if its crap (which it is).

Format: Audio CD
I gave the first book 4 stars, and this one 3. Knit 2 rambles quite a bit, trying too hard to equal the stories with all the characters, instead of having a main focus and supporting characters, like the first novel did. It finally all comes together, a bit improbably, but in a fairly satisfying way. The characters are still interesting, and the friendships between them are still very nice to read.

I listened to this on audiobook, and the narrator does a fine job, differentiating between the characters nicely but without too many exaggerated voices (except for Ginger, a 5 year old girl who inexplicably sounds like a cranky old man with smoker's lung).

I enjoyed the sequel. I read it quickly after finishing the first novel. I think being familiar with the characters helped to make the story more compelling. I found there were still too many characters, and it wasn't quite as good as the first one. It was a great summer read though. Nice and relaxing, and it was good chick lit!

...not quite as good as the first. As sequels often are, this one deals with the right characters and takes them on in time beyond the end of the first book. However, the conflict is not as strong nor are the characters as interesting. If you read the first book, you will enjoy the second, but it's not a must-read.
