HINTS TO PURCHASERS OF KNITTING- SILK.

Florence Knitting Silk is made of the best quality of pure silk the market affords, prepared by combing in a manner similar to that adopted in the preparation of fine wools when intended for knitting purposes. It is only in this way that the peculiar ••soft finish," so noticeable in ell silk threads bearing the Florence brand, is obtained. Silk knitting yarns made by combing are very uniform in size. They have a rich subdued lustre, which is fully preserved, and even increased, by frequent washings. It is our purpose to offer the Florence Silk in no shade which will not bear reasonable washing without impairing its beauty of color. Florence Knitting Silk is always sold in one-half ounce balls. It is made in two

No. 300 (coarse) and No. 500 (fine). In buying, see that the brand Florence stamped in one end of the wood on which the silk is wound. Both sizes can be obtained in any of the following colors, viz.: black; cardinal; scarlet; sultan; light, medium and dark garnet; pink; flesh; terra-cotta; light and medium blue; French blue; medium and dark navy; light, medium and peacock blue; turquoise blue; cadet blue; straw; bright yellow gold; old gold; blue white; cream white; tan; fawn; drab; steel; slate; gray; light, medium and dark brown; seal brown; olive brown; invisible green; olive green in five shades; royal purple; lavender pearl and cherry. The No. 300 size can also be had in shaded olive, scarlet, blue, yellow, brown and green.

CAUTION. Ladies are cautioned against all imitations

o/Florence Knitting Silk.

These imitations are offered by makers of sewing silk who have neither the experience nor the machinery required for making genuine knitting silk. Our readers, if using any of the nondescript yarns, or so-called knitting silks which we caution them against, although otherwise following the rules laid down in this book, will have no one to blame but themselves, if they meet with failure in trying to do good work. To do good work, one must have the best silk. To obtain the best, buy only Brilliancy and durability of color, smoothness and the Florence Knitting Silk. evenness of size in thread, with softness of finish a.nd freedom from all deleterious dyestuffs, are the qualities which have established the reputation of the Florence, as the only Knitting Silk which has met with favorable consideration. It is for sale by dealers in fine fancy goods everywhere. Ask for it, and do not allow substitutes to be imposed upon you.

WASHING. In washing articles made from Florence Silk, use a moderate amount of Castile Soap, thoroughly dissolved in tepid water. Extract the water by rolling and twisting in a coarse crash towel, after which put in good form and dry without exposure to the

sun.

EDGINGS. Lace edgings knit from the No. 500 (fine) silk are less expensive than those knit from the No. 300 (coarse) silk. Use No 19 needles for No. 500 silk, and No. 10 needles for No. 300 silk, when knitting these trimmings.

All the rules given in this book for mittens and stockings are based upon an estistitches to each inch in width for No. 19 needles, with No. 300 Florence Knitting Silk, and 20 stitches to each inch in width Avith No. 500 Florence Knitting very close Silk and No. 22 needles. The calculation is for medium knitting, neither

FANCY PATTERNS. The fancy

patterns described in this work will be found of great value in knitting mittens or stockings. The descriptions are clear, and if strictly followed, there can be no failure to reproduce the designs, thus adding much beauty to these articles. For stockings knit in fancy stitches, either size of silk may be used with beautiful results; but greater satisfaction will doubtless be obtained by those who have the time to perform the extra work required, if the finer size (No. 500) be used.

We would not, however, have our readers lose sight

of the advantage to be gained use of the coarser size (No. 300), owing to its greater warmth, which is an important consideration in our cool climate at most seasons of the year. in the

These lines show where the pattern as described begins and leaves off. To illustrate Suppose that the perpendicular line a and the horizontal line b were extended into the cut, the point where they would intersect at right angles is the point where our description begins; and the point where the perpendicular line c and the horizontal line d would intersect at right angles, if extended into the cut, is the point where our description ends. In other words, the angle of the lines a b marks the first stitch of the first round, and the angle of the lines c d the last stitch of last round. This explanation is offered to prevent any confusion in the minds of knitters of small experience, as in many of the cuts the designs are shown repeated one or more It will

CROCHETED SILK PURSES

IN

BEAD-WORK.

BY DOROTHY BRADFORD.

Fashion repeats herself at irregular intervals, not only in wearing apparel and house furnishings, but in those articles of needle-work the making of which has in all ages occupied the leisure hours of women. One of the latest revivals of an ancient fancy is crocheted bead-work in silk, in

form of purses and bags of various descriptions. the heirlooms handed down by old families, some of the women of the present time will find examples of this work which do credit to the ingenuity and But while our grandmothers did perseverance of their ancestors in this direction. well with crude materials in their day, scientific progress in the dyeing and spinning of silk, and the working of metals and glass, has been so great since then, that the materials offered now should afford superior specimens of this handicraft from their descendants. To aid her co-workers in this is the purpose of the writer in the

the purses, the cuts will be all the guide needed to produce the variety of designs which are shown herei Of these there are four shapes, made to conform to the styles of metallic trimmings which the market now affords; and some of them are shown in a variety of designs, all easy of execution. Probably no class of fancy work which our readers may undertake will prove so satisfactory as the making of these purses. Beside the annual holiday period, weddings and birthdays come with surprising frequency in the social list, and many women find it difficult to choose suitable gifts within their means at such times. Our first beaded purse was made for such a purpose. Aside from the shape to in knitting,

good from bad beads except by careful inspection to see that they are not tarnished or rusted by shop wear, and that in stringing them bad-shaped beads have been rejected. The best steel beads do not tarnish in years of wear. They are commonly sold in bunches of 12 strings, each containing about 100 beads, and retail for about 16 cents per bunch, for size No. 8. The market affords other kinds of metal beads, such as gilt, silver, copper and other colors in metal, which we suppose are all produced by methods of plating, the durability of which is rather doubtful. The price of these beads is about 25 cents per bunch at retail. There are two kinds of glass beads which are effective in this work one a cut glass, of shape and size similar to steel, and the other called seed or embroidery beads. Of the first, black and ruby are the only colors we have seen, but of the latter kind a greater variety of colors may be had. Glass beads are not so commonly sold by general dealers, but can be found in the large cities at the toy and fancy -goods stores. One of the best colors in glass is amber, so called on account of its close resemblance to that material. Matched with silk of same shade, or in tasty combination with other colors, these amber purses are of surpassing beauty and are a real novelty. As amber jewelry is now popular, the owner of an amber beaded purse may rejoice in the possession of one of the latest fancies, rich, durable and fashionable. to distinguish

mings are excellent as well. Of the gilt we cannot speak very highly, as they are not very tasty, and often have an offensive odor. First-class dealers keep a variety of all these styles. For the two small rings used on long purses (see Fig. 9) we paid 30 cents. For the fancy bars, including chain and ring (see Fig. 1), we paid 38 cents. For the plain bars, including chain and ring (see Fig. 2), we paid 25 centsFor the plain clasp, with steel fringe, and balls for the bottom of purse (see Fig. 6), we paid 75 cents. For the fancy clasp, without fringe (see Fig. 7), we paid 50 cents. For the nickel-plated ring (see Fig. 8) we paid 15 cents. Several of the purses shown have fringe made by stringing beads, and we think this style of finish is better than the ready-made fringes, because the spangles and rings linked together have a noisy jingle which may be unpleasant.

description

more

clear, it

should be observed that the single crochet

forming a tubular web, is so nearly square that it is suitable any pattern which can be worked in the cross-stitch or Berlin embroidery. One bead is placed on each stitch, and counts for one square in the design. The beads are not sewed on after the crocheting, but are strung on the silk before beginning, and introduced one at a time during the progress of the work. Those squares which form the groundwork for the fancy figures are of course without beads. In doing the work, it should be observed that the designs in all the stitch,

in rounds,

for the formation of

engravings are commenced at the lower left-hand corner, counting the stitches in the pattern from left to right, notwithstanding that the work is executed in the opposite direction as held in the hands (see Fig. 6). By the liberality of our publishers,

No. 8 steel beads can be easily strung with a slender needle, with oval eye, large enough to carry the EE silk. The beads jT, should be slid off from the original strings five or six at a time, and held between the thumb and first finger, while the needle is pushed through, repeating until the whole number is obtained. This enables the worker to reject the poor beads, if any are noticed. Another plan is to rub beeswax on the end of silk and the end of cotton on which the beads come, lapping the two ends It is several inches and rubbing them together as one thread. then possible to slide the whole number from one string to the other. We have found the glass beads more difficult to string with a needle, and have used the wax for them. Another device is to rub a little dissolved gum arabic or common mucilage on the end of silk, rubbing this down to a point nicely, thus forming

Decreasing in the heel is done at four points in every row where plain knitting done, no decrease being made in the purled rows. The number of stitches in a heel should always be odd, the central or seam stitch dividing the whole number into two sections, each containing an even number of f

is

stitches.

The decreasing should be done at two points in each section, once next the seam, nd again at a point about one-half way between this decrease and the edge of the heel on either side the seam, thus disposing of 4 stitches in each decreased row. The first stitch on either side of the seam should be knit plain in every decreased
