Spanning the season from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, Knit the Season follows the now college-aged Dakota Walker as she takes a much needed break to visit her Gran in Scotland for the holidays. Dakota is at a crossroads in her life, as everything seems to be changing all at once. While she is working hard to build her future career, the members of her family and her “extended family”—the Friday Night Knitting Club—are all following new dreams that take them in different directions. As Dakota struggles to become a fully independent adult, she draws strength from stories about her late mother, Georgia, at her own life’s crossroads. Through the rich collection of memories shared by her friends and family, we view the full circle of Georgia’s life—as a child, a teen, a young woman in love, and a doting new mother—as well as the web of people she touched.

Knit the Season is a loving, moving, laugh-out-loud celebration, a heartwarming novel about the richness of family bonds and the joys of friendship.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke Berry | 2/15/2014

    " This book was a great way to finish the story lines of the previous books. I just found it was 150 pages too short. It felt we were in the middle of the book but missed the major dilemma and then it just ended. Very awkward. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith | 2/8/2014

    " Part Three follows well, still had lots more tears but characters still well written. Great book for rainy weather and a cup of tea. Would definitely read more if Kate were to continue the storylines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 2/6/2014

    " A nice follow up to Knit Two starting about a year where Knit Two concludes. The holiday season is the focus with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years being the focus. James is finally letting Dakota follow her own dreams, and she is learning how to be a grown-up. Peri has a job offer to go to Paris. Darwin is focused on being a mother. Lucie is in the middle-place rasing a daughter and care giver to her mother. Catherine is falling in love. Anita is finally marrying Marty. KC is worried about losing her friends. It's a good holiday read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 1/26/2014

    " I've enjoyed the other two books in the "Knit" series by Kate Jacobs, and this one was good, as well. I can't say it was a huge page-turner, but it was good to read the "next chapters" in the lives of all the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin Butera | 1/26/2014

    " Another great story of the Friday Knight Knitting club...I haven't read a Kate Jacobs book that I haven't liked. You feel like you really know the characters! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth E | 1/18/2014

    " This story was fair, and a predictable conclusion to the series. I think what I struggle with, is the (lack of) character development. Dakota, the main character, is in her early 20s in this story, but the voice given to her, the way she reacts to situations, does not at all seem consistent with a young woman of her age. Quite disappointing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Blue58 | 1/17/2014

    " Sorry, but I couldn't get past page 8. Refused to read any more. Very poor sentence structure. It is book #2 in a series and fails to explain who any of the characters are from the previous book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bekki | 1/8/2014

    " A fun, light read - I'd say the novel equivilent of Love Actually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teri | 1/4/2014

    " It was nice to re-visit the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club. If you are a fan, you would enjoy this! Nice light holiday read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/25/2013

    " Good book though The Friday Night Knitting Club (1st in the series) was the best! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 11/22/2013

    " It is like a visit with old friends. I love these books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moose | 11/10/2013

    " Such a cute fast read. I didn't even know there was a third book til I saw it in the library. If you haven't read the first book, I highly recommend you get started! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 11/5/2013

    " I feel like she should have stopped with the second book. Found this one boring and too happy go lucky predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dwerdell | 10/25/2013

    " The latest news from the Friday night Knitting Club. If you've read the others you don't want to miss this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 10/25/2013

    " A very pleasant, but predictable book updating the stories of the women who meet on Friday nights at Walker and Daughter knitting store. I really liked the first book in this series, I wasn't that wild about the second book, and I really think that this one was the weakest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisa | 9/5/2013

    " I actually enjoyed this book much more than the first one, I felt like you got to know more of the characters and feel a part of their lives. Still have to read Knit 2, am looking forward to it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dina | 8/7/2013

    " Have not been this happy to be done with a book in a long time. At least it got me knitting again... not totally worthless but tough to get through... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorraine | 6/17/2013

    " This book finishes the saga of Georgia Walker's friends and family in the holiday season. There are some flashbacks to Georgia's youth, and wraps (knits) up all the loose story lines. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pamela | 5/20/2013

    " I'm giving this book only two stars because even though I enjoyed the characters and got completely caught up in the story, the ending ruined it for me. There was just no good reason for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Stetter | 2/28/2013

    " The first two books in this series were much better. I think I am finished with holiday books written just because it's holiday time. I did make the book mark from the pattern in the back of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle Lines | 12/18/2012

    " Similar to the second book of this series, I wasn't a huge fan of the writing style, but I did enjoy the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 6/17/2012

    " I wonder why the author killed off the main and beloved character in the first book if her ghost is going to be such a main character in the subsequent books. There was no poinbt in killng Georgia Walker....stories would be just as heart warming, and probably more so, if she were alive still. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camdener | 6/13/2012

    " This is the third book in the series. I am always interested in the strength of friendships and the growth of the friends involved. That said, I was not crazy about this book. It seemed a little scattered to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy | 5/31/2012

    " An then I picked up the third book for another quick and cozy read. These books make me want to knit and hang out with friends...perfect for fall. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Claudia Douris | 4/22/2012

    " It seems that Kate Jacobs wrote this book just so it was out for the Christmas Rush.... No character development and no plot.. very boring and dry! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise Smith | 2/19/2012

    " While I was listening to these, I didn't think that I liked them that much but I did listen to all three and when I finished I found myself wondering what the characters were up to now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 12/9/2011

    " As the third book in the series I thought it was very tiring and not really about much of anything...this would be a good time to end the series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Riikka | 10/13/2011

    " This book was good too, but I think this was too predictable. It really doesn't matter, I loved this anyway. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin Bunton | 6/28/2011

    " This book didn't captivate me quite like the others, but it was good to catch up with familiar characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 5/12/2011

    " I feel like she should have stopped with the second book. Found this one boring and too happy go lucky predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 5/10/2011

    " This book was a great way to finish the story lines of the previous books. I just found it was 150 pages too short. It felt we were in the middle of the book but missed the major dilemma and then it just ended. Very awkward. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 4/24/2011

    " A bit frustrating to read. More complicated than it needs to be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 4/19/2011

    " Lots of changes in the lives of the characters, even more so than in the previous book. I think I like where most of them ended up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 4/14/2011

    " Feel good, fuzzy, warm reading :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pamela | 4/7/2011

    " I'm giving this book only two stars because even though I enjoyed the characters and got completely caught up in the story, the ending ruined it for me. There was just no good reason for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 4/5/2011

    " I liked this as a follow up to Jacobs other books. I wouldn't recommend it for someone that does not know and like the characters from Friday Knit Knitting Club because this just follows those characters and closes the story for them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 3/21/2011

    " Part 3 of series. The first two were WAY better! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 3/9/2011

    " This was the 3rd book in this series. Enjoyed the writing and knew the characters but it was not the best of the 3.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 3/5/2011

    " Quick and cute read. Everyone in the "Knit" series is settling into life and moving forward. Always nice to have a fun story to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 3/4/2011

    " These ladies crack me up! But I often wonder... am I really doing what I want to do with my life? Am I following my heart?

    Good narration on this one, too! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 3/4/2011

    " This book was rushed. There were a few plots that she set up to be hairy and all the sudden...solved. So the conflict that you expect to come about to solve the problem didn't happen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 3/2/2011

    " I wonder why the author killed off the main and beloved character in the first book if her ghost is going to be such a main character in the subsequent books. There was no poinbt in killng Georgia Walker....stories would be just as heart warming, and probably more so, if she were alive still. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 2/28/2011

    " I still really enjoyed this book, but it wasn't quite up to par with its predecessors. Still really enjoyable, though! "
