"Among the earliest and the simplest of all crafts it that of the knitter. It is the simplest...[and] there is a charm or fascination about the work that is not surpassed by any other work...The best way to learn to knit is to have the right sort of grandmother...but since those grandmothers are no more to be had, we who remember them must help Priscilla teach "how to knit."
There are very few stitches in knitting, but the complicated designs are the result of combinations, successions, alternations, and repetitions of those few stitches. ."
Scores upon scores of patterns with images and detailed instructions for baby bonnets, doilies, quilt blocks, quilt strips, quilt borders, counterpanes, many laces from narrow to wide, purses, boudoir caps, edgings, collars and much, much more!
