    • 1892, Ménie Muriel Dowie, Cairns Collection of American Women Writers, A girl in the Karpathians:
      In England I know a household where, after the eight o'clock breakfast, it is usual to behandle one's skeins, find one's knitting, and continue the long even rounds of the stocking begun yesterday, or copy patiently the completed gusset in the sleeve of a spencer.
