Vintage Goodies - Ladies' Stockings

This is from a book dating to the 1870's-1880's (I can't recall the exact date, and I'm not going to get up and look right now; I'll post a correction later). It's been awhile since I scanned these photos in; hopefully they all belong to the same pattern ;-)

Click on the images to see a larger version, please.

1884 is the year of this pattern, I believe. I can verify it if needed - just leave a comment!

I can't even imagine how tiny those needles must be! As often as I stab myself with my size 1 sock needles, I should probably never be allowed to touch such things.....

If that ain't the truth! Anything below a size 3 spells trouble for me (and yet I've got 2 projects on size 2s).
