Four lives knit together . . . There's a little shop on Blossom Street in Seattle. You go there to buy yarn, knitting supplies and patterns -- and now you can join a knitting class. How to knit a baby blanket: that's the first lesson.

Lydia Hoffman owns the shop, which she calls A Good Yarn. It represents her dream of a new beginning, a life free from the cancer that has ravaged her twice. A life that offers a chance at love . . .and maybe marriage.

Jacqueline Donovan, the first woman to join the class, is estranged from her husband; her marriage has dwindled into an arrangement of separate rooms and separate lives. She disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but if she knits a baby blanket, she can at least pretend to like her pregnant daughter-in-law.

For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope as she and her husband make a final attempt at in vitro pregnancy.

And tough-looking Alix Townsend -- that's Alix with an i -- is learning to knit her blanket for a court-ordered community service project.

These four women, brought together by the age-old craft of knitting, make unexpected discoveries -- about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to love, to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams. Discoveries only women can share . . .
