There’s a little shop on Blossom Street in Seattle called A
Good Yarn. You go there to buy knitting supplies and patterns, and now it’s
offering a knitting class. The first lesson: how to knit a baby blanket.
For owner Lydia Hoffman, the shop represents her dream of
beginning a new life free from the cancer that has ravaged her twice. A life
that offers a chance at love and maybe marriage.
Jacqueline Donovan is stuck in a marriage that 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 baby blanket, she can at
least pretend to like her pregnant daughter-in-law.
For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope
as she and her husband make a final attempt at in vitro pregnancy.
And tense-looking Alix Townsend is learning to knit her
blanket for her court-ordered community service project.
Brought together by an age-old craft, these four women make
unexpected discoveries about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead
to love, to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams.
