This month's pick is The Friday Night Knitting Club written by Kate Jacobs. This a a fantastic read and I know the Shadyside Gals loved it! So Join us and let's chat, before the crazy Holiday season gets to you. A synopsis of the book:

To know yourself, to know your friends, all you need to do is knit.? Walker and Daughter is Georgia Walker?s little yarn shop is tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan?s Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club was improvised by some of Georgia?s regulars who had strolled into the yarn shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week they gather to work on their latest projects and chat?and occasionally clash?over their stories of love, life and everything else.
As a single mom in her late 30s, Georgia has her hands full juggling the demands of running the store with the challenges of raising her spunky tween daughter, Dakota. Helping her out is her mentor and dear friend, Anita, a wealthy uptown widow. The rest of the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club are just as varied as the skeins of yarn in the shop?s bins. There?s Petra, a pre-law student turned handbag designer; Darwin, a somewhat aloof grad student in women?s studies; and Lucie, a petite, quiet woman who?s harboring some secrets of her own.

Suddenly the shop?s comfortable world is shaken up: James, Georgia?s ex, wants to play a larger role in Dakota?s life ? and possibly Georgia?s as well. Kat, a former friend from high school, returns to New York as a rich Park Avenue wife, and uneasily renews her old bond with Georgia. Meanwhile, Anita must confront her growing (and reciprocated) feelings for Marty, the kind neighborhood deli owner. The women?s lives gradually weave together stitch by stitch, and when the unthinkable happens, they are forced to realize what they?ve created: not just a knitting club, but a sisterhood.
