Wow. I was not interested in reading this book at first. A friend recommended it, so I figured why not? It might turn out to be good. This book was great!! Lots of depth. I laughed out loud and I cried too. Books rarely make me cry, but I finished this book in tears. I wanted to reach out and hug every woman in this book. It was very touching.

Fun. This book is a great testament to the social connections that form through traditonally-female crafts. The author is wonderfully perceptive in her descriptions of the characters -- I often felt like I knew people just like each character -- yet the characters remain multidimensional. Some unnecessary twists in the end, in my opinion, but they didn't detract from the good feeling I felt as I finished the book.

Do women still knit? Is knitting just an old-fashioned skill? Are women in NYC cold and unfeeling and never reach out to each other. With this book you'll find that the answers are NO. This book is story of how women knit their lives together while meeting to knit yarn. A great story of women supporting women, even through the crises of their lives.

I usually don't like mushy books about female friendships, but this book was just plain good from beginning to end! I liked the way the author divided the book so that each character had their share of the spotlight. This was a good book to read while commuting-easy to read and easy to put down and pick back up later. This book was just so refreshing and as soon as I finished it, I started phoning some friends to get together. These female friendships are valuable, ladies! I have a new appreciation for my girlfriends now...I can't wait to read more by this author.

A charming read, even if you aren't a knitter. It's what friendship is all about...I think I'll dig into my knitting basket! I laughed, I cried,...enjoyed this book which is a very good first novel. I'm sure there will be sequels.

Didn't think at first I was going to like this book, but became completely involved in the characters, their lives, and how they were there for each other. Just like knitting their lives entwined with each other to make a whole. Loved it.
