McCormack, Mary A: Spool Knitting. v1. 11 Jan 2009
Mary A. McCormack
This is a Juvenile Crafts book.
"Few elementary exercises have aroused more interest in the child than the toy knitting; due, perhaps, to its simplicity and his power to do it easily and well.
To some keen observer the little orb-weaving spider may have suggested this form of occupation. Be this as it may, the child who is a lover of nature will be quick to perceive the strong resemblance he bears to this little insect while at work with his toy knitter, going from post to post just as the insect worked its net in spiral form on his framework of radiating lines."
Note: I reordered the page titles and images to make them flow better, as in the original book the pictures were on the opposing page to the text so one could refer to it. In the online copy the images come before the page titles which would have looked sloppy on a reader not to mention made producing a TOC more difficult. I also relettered two illustration pictures because the original handwritten letters were not visible on the smaller screen. On photographs I added a thin border for aesthetics against the blank background.
