We've all had moments when we grasp onto the most pathetic things in life to get us through a tough time. For example, you know you’re scraping the bottom when you find solace in the fact that your cat still loves you. Come on, you’ve been there. We all have.

If things aren’t exactly right at the moment, it might be time to follow the support-system strategy of Georgia Walker – the character in Kate Jacobs’ Friday Night Knitting Club – who found comfort in her special club of crafters. The No. 1 New York Times bestseller chronicled a mother-daughter team that owns a successful yarn shop in NYC and organizes a makeshift knitting club. Soon enough, crisis creeps into their personal lives, but they make it through with the support of their fellow knitters. The story continues with Jacobs’ new tome, Knit Two, a compelling continuation of emotional bonding over some great tips on purling and cabling.

Meet Jacobs as she reads from and signs copies of Knit Two at Changing Hands Bookstore.
