Wormspit.com — Saganishiki and Beaded Knitting Markers

Michael Cook’s Saganishiki WeavingA while back I did a post on Michael Cook and his HGTV segment about the ancient craft of tablet (card) weaving.  On his website, Wormspit.com, he shows that card weaving is only one of his accomplishments.  Saganishiki is the Japanese weaving technique that uses lacquered or gilded rice paper warp and silk thread for the weft.  The photo at right is Michael’s work during a workshop with Mihoko Karaki.  He includes photos of her work on his page and it is more than worth the click to see her beautiful work.

 It seems he is not only a talented spinner and weaver, he also knits.  And makes his own knitting markers… with the tutorial here.  Wish he lived next door!
