A quote: Popular demand for our publications on knitting, induces us to offer No. 5 in our series. The contents of this number consist of rules for laces, mittens, and fancy designs suitable for stockings or mittens.'' ''It had not been our purpose in any of our publications to offer instruction in the first steps of the art of knitting, as we assume that those who will seek guidance from the pages of these books, will have already advanced beyond that point in their domestic education. We advise those who have never received the primary lessons in knitting to learn at once from some friend, and thereby realize that it is a recreation that may be indulged in and enjoyed at any moment when rest from more laborious work is required.''
