Come on in and join the knitting circle - it might just save your life...

Spinning yarns, weaving tales, mending lives...

Every Wednesday a group of women gathers at Alice's Sit and Knit. Little do they know that they will learn so much more than patterns...

Grieving Mary needs to fill the empty days after the death of her only child.

Glamorous Scarlet is the life and soul of any party. But beneath her trademark red hair and beaming smile lurks heartache.

Sculptor Lulu seems too cool to live in the suburbs. Why has she fled New York's bright lights?

Model housewife Beth never has a hair out of place. But her perfect world is about to fall apart....

Irish-born Ellen wears the weight of the world on her shoulders but not her heart on her sleeve. What is she hiding?

As the weeks go by, under mysterious Alice's watchful eye, an unlikely friendship forms. Secrets are revealed and pacts made. Then tragedy strikes, and each woman must learn to face her own past in order to move on...
