    Excerpt from Dictionary of Needlework, Vol. 2

    Stockings. - The art of Knitting stockings came from Spain, and the first mention of their introduction into England is when Edward VI. Had a pair Of silk ones pre sented to him. Queen Elizabeth, in 1561, had a pair presented to her, which were the handiwork of her waiting woman, but until then had only worn cloth or woollen materials shaped to the leg. The art once learnt in England soon'beca'me universal, and for a very long time was one of the cmef industries and supports of the peasantry in both England and Scotland, although as early as 1589 William Lee invented a machine for weaving stockings. At the present time stocking Knitting is chie¿y the work of the ladies of England and the peasants of the Shetland Isles and Scotland, as machine made stockings, though not wearing so well, are' cheaper than hand made ones. The beauty of stocking knitting consists in the evenness of the stitches, and the skill and regularity with which the Shaping of the leg, the putting in of the heel, and the rounding Off of the toe are managed.

    The pins used should be short ones, and should. Have already been Knitted with, as the ease with which they move is important. Their size should be proportionate to the thickness of the material used. The number of stitches Cast On to commence with, depends so much upon the size of the person that no certain number can be given, but the' following scale will be some guide: Gentleman's knicker bockers in four ply fingering worsted, needles N o. 16, stitches 156. Gentleman's socks, in the same wool, sixty nine stitches. In fine wool or silk for socks, 120 stitches or more. Lady's Stockings, needles No. 18, merino wool or silk, 148 stitches. Sock for boy of twelve, in worsted, eighty-four stitches; in lambs' wool, sixty-nine stitches. Boy's sock of eight years of age, in fingering wool, seventy two stitches; in lambs' wool, fifty-two stitches. Stocking for a child of five years, in merino wool, needles No. 18, 118 stitches. For a child of eight years, same wool and needles, 132 stitches. For a girl of fourteen, lambs' wool, and needles No. 18, eighty-four stitches.
