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
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 . . .
