Lydia Hoffman has opened up a yarn shop on Blossom Street. She wants to affirm her life now that she is cancer-free. In order to gain some business Lydia offers beginners a lesson on "Knitting a Baby Blanket". Three ladies show up.
Jacqueline who is a high society snob dislikes her daughter-in-law and now finds out she is to be a grandma. This blanket will show 'good faith'.
Carol who has been through two IVFs is about to begin another set which will be her last. She believes this is a sign of a pregnancy without mishaps.
Alix who was caught with her roomie's drugs will do this for community service. Maybe knitting is a way to control her anger.
Each of the ladies is completely different and they end up learning about themselves and forming deep friendships.
First Line: "The first time I saw the empty store on Blossom Street I thought of my father."
