Following the tradition of Pickwick Papers (Charles Dickens) and Anne of Green Gables (L.M. Montgomery), Amish Friends Knitting Circle is a continuing story, broken down into 8 parts. If you liked receiving the installments of the best-selling, Amish Knitting Circle Series, (the prequel to this series), then join Granny Weaver as she invites her friends from the Smicksburg Baptist Church to a summer circle to knit for charity.
Granny Weaver believes women are stronger spun together, just like the wool she spins. But will her Amish knitting circle snap if spun with women from the Smicksburg Baptist Church? Granny’s believes they can be knit together for a worthy cause: knitting hats, gloves and scarves to the growing homeless population across the USA.
So Granny invites:
Colleen, a young woman living at Forget-Me-Not Manor, a refuge for homeless mothers.
Janice, a burnt out pastor’s wife…or a women going through the change of life.
Marge, a new neighbor learning to live off-the-grid, whose husband fears her new-found faith.
Suzy, who will teach knitting with needles, but is distressed over her aging dog’s health.
Granny does many “casting off” prayers that her English friends will bond with Ella, Ruth, Lizzie, Lavina, Maryann, and Fannie, and not unravel the knitting circle she holds so dear.
