Four lives knit together…
      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 - that's Alix with an "i" - is learning to knit her blanket for her court-ordered community service...
