Knit the Season, by Kate Jacobs is the third book in the Friday Night Knitting Club Series. I was lucky enough to read The first book, The Friday Night Knitting Club and Knit Two with my online book club, The Page Turners. In many ways we are like the Friday Night Knitting Club members. We enjoyed both books and we had the pleasure of Kate Jacobs joining in our live book chat. (book club visit link) It was a special event for our club.
It takes about 30 seconds to sink down into the book and get reacquainted with the members of this remarkable knitting club. It is just a delight to get back into the lives of the club members. Each woman in the club has their hurdles and joys that are unique to them. Their issues feel so real and believable. It really could be any of my friends or family or even me!
This time around, surrounded by the holiday themes of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and the Special New Year's celebration, we get to spend another truly special time with Dakota, KC, Catherine, Peri, Darwin, Anita, Marty and the rest of the gang. Will we get to back to Scotland to spend time with Gran? And will that very special wedding finally happen?
The book is about family and friendships. It is about a legacy of a woman and her daughter, and the special bonds that can never be broken even long after one has left this world. The glimpses into Georgia's life through memories will bring many kinds of tears to your eyes. It is truly special and makes this book extra meaningful and addictive. I really have missed Georgia and this is a wonderful way to get to "spend time with her." In fact it is a special way for any of us who have lost a special person to bring them back into our lives whenever we need to smile through our tears.
This book did not disappoint me in anyway. It surpassed my expectation. I will go out on a limb and say that I feel I enjoyed it as much if not more than the the other books in the series. The book is charmingly addictive and satisfying. This book is on sale today! I wholeheartedly recommend this book, as well as the series, to anyone. I will also note that this book is special to me because of the knitting shop and the knitting projects, but you do not have to be a knitter to enjoy this series.
