An Excerpt:

''From time immemorable we have had various revivals of what is termed the ''lost arts.'' At present the art of knitting is undergoing one of these processes, although it can by no means be called a lost art, even though for years it has not, as in earlier days, been considered a necessary part of a young woman's education. The more practical German and English workers have never neglected it, as the have a deceded preference for substantial hand-made articles...An ancient writher says: ''It does not distract the attention or check the powers of imagination. It forms a ready resource when a vacuity occurs in conversation; it impairs neither body nor mind, and requires no straining of the eyesight. It may be interrupted without lossk and again resumed without trouble. The whole apparatus is so cheap, needs so little room, and is so light that it can be kept and cracefully carried about in a basket, the beauty of which displays the expertness and taste of the fair worker...''
