''Stocking knitting is pleasant work for winter evenings, as it sis not trying to the eyes, nor is it any hindrance to conversation; it also is convenient for taking up at odd moments, and it is astonishing how fast a leg or foot will progress even if worked only just a round or two at a time as opportunity occurs. Gentlemen especially are fond of hand-knotted socks and stockings, they are nice for children...
...The instructions and recipes published in this paper have been compiled especially to aid those who wish to set about the work in a thoroughly practical manner, every known variety of heel and toe is fully explained and illustrated, the several examples of stockings are minutely detailed, and comprise plain, ribbed, and fancy knit stockings of every description, including several stockings knitted on two needles only, most perfect fitting, and this form of proceeding will certainly be adopted with favour by invalids and others who find it inconvenient to knit in the usual way with four pins.
