      No. The author is either messing with you (it IS fiction, after all)
      or just plain wrong.

      This site makes some rather far fetched claims about "knitted" items
      in early Japan, but it's a stretch to say that basket weaving or
      net-making is be knitting.

      I hope Fujiwara no Nagamochi sees this - he's a fibergeek and a
      knitter and he may know more.

          No worries. Fiction is fiction. Some fiction writers do a lot of
          really good, detailed research, some don't do any at all. It is what
