The first time I saw the empty store on Blossom Street I thought of my father.
Lydia Hoffman is a cancer survivor and the owner of the yarn shop on Blossom Street. She starts a class teaching how to make a baby blanket which three other women join. Jacqueline is recently divorced and she really dislikes her pregnant daughter-in-law. But she is hopeful that will change when she knits a baby blanket for her. Carol and her husband have been trying to get pregnant for a long time, and she thinks perhaps knitting a baby blanket will help. Alex is a younger woman who has been ordered by the court to do community service and she decides to join the class to knit a baby blanket and donate it to a worthy cause. This is the story of four individual women and their troubles. But even more, it is the story of how they come together to help each other with friendship and community as the result.
