My Knitting Book by Frances Lambert

First Page:

My Knitting Book.

By Miss Lambert, (Authoress of the Hand book of Needlework.)

LONDON:

JOHN MURRAY, ALBEMARLE STREET. 1843.

PRICE EIGHTEEN PENCE.

Richards, 100, St. Martin's Lane.

PREFACE.

The examples of knitting, contained in the following pages, have been selected with the greatest care, many are original, and the whole are so arranged as to render them comprehensible even to a novice in the art.

Knitting being so often sought, as an evening amusement, both by the aged and by invalids, a large and distinct type has been adopted, as affording an additional facility. The writer feels confident in the recommendation of "MY KNITTING BOOK," and humbly hopes it may meet with the same liberal reception that has been accorded to her "HAND BOOK OF NEEDLEWORK."

The numerous piracies that have been committed on her last mentioned work, have been one inducement to publish this little volume; and from the low price at which it is fixed, nothing, but a very extended circulation, can ensure her from loss. Some few of the examples have been selected from the chapter on knitting, in the "HAND BOOK."

3, New Burlington Street , November 1843.
