Here is another lovely Dakota Prairie Treasures CD Republication™! A lithographed silk knitting instruction book produced in 1886 by the Nonotuck Silk Company! Wow, the original price was 6 cents!!! The ''How to Use Florence Knitting Silk'' book covers the gentle home art of clothing one's family in the finest of purses, handbags, chatelaines, reticules, socks, stockings, mittens and decorative edgings!

This is a CD Republication™ of an 1886 booklet called How to Use Florence Knitting Silk Book, No. 5. You have everything you need to recreate these lovely items but the vintage/antique knitting needles (found on Atomic Mall!) and the vintage/antique silk or cotton thread (also found on Atomic Mall!) to put a pretty in every room of your home and for you and yours to wear! You just have to hunt for a little bit!!! :^)

It includesa plethora of patterns and ''Rules'' so you can see item will keep you busy a long time these coming cold winter months making beautiful knit items for you and yours, as gifts or to sell at autumn/winter craft fairs.

Its 100 pages contains complete instructions for making a plethora of knitting laces for clothing embellishments, curtains, linens and other items! It even has some mitten, sock and other patterns included! There are many lovely etchings demonstrating the construction, implements and embellishment techniques from the late 1880's. Scarce and intriguingly useful information jam-packed in 64 pages just waiting for your creative muse and touch!

It contains not only all the valuable matter of earlier editions, but much else that is new and useful. comprising a most comprehensive collection of rules for Mittens, Stockings, Laces, and fancy designs relating to this subject. To this is added a chapter on Crocheted Sild Purses, elaborately illustrated with new and beautiful designs in beadwork. There will also be found an illustrated contributed article by an experienced writher on ''Outline Embroidery and other Fancy Work.''
