Lydia Hoffman owns a shop on Blossom Street, 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 her knitting 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 blanket, she can at least pretend to like her pregnant daughter-in-law.
For Carol Girard, knitting a 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 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.
