Four lives knit together...

There's a little yarn store in Seattle called A Good Yarn. It's owned by Lydia Hoffman, and it represents her dream of a new beginning, a life free from cancer. A life that offers a chance at love...

Lydia teaches knitting to beginners, and the first class is How to Make a Baby Blanket. Three women join. Jacqueline Donovan disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but knitting a baby blanket would be a gesture of reconciliation.

For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope as she and her husband make a final attempt to conceive.

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