The Knitting Circle by Ann Hood

The Knitting Circle finds a fortyish woman named Mary grieving the death of her young daughter, Stella. Everything seems to remind her of Stella and the relationships in her life are fraying at their edges. Her mother convinces her to take knitting lessons, so Mary reluctantly visits Big Alice's Sit and Knit. She joins the knitting circle and with the new relationships with both the other women and her knitting, she begins to put her life back together one stitch at a time. This novel by Ann Hood (who has recently lost her own child) is structured around 10 different knitting lessons and has received positive reviews. The Washington Post says, "It is a wondrously simple book about something complicated: the nearly unendurable process of enduring after a great loss."
