FYI, most period socks or stockings I've seen are actually not
knitted. I know that weaving may not be what you're looking for, but
hirao (especially the early ones) are woven by hand, and might be
interesting. If I have time, I'll find some examples for you. There
are even some pretty cools ones where you weave with beads embedded in
- I made a hat using some basket weaving techniques. I'm sure it's not
period, but with a little research, it might be something she enjoys.

- Found this online about knitting in Asia (at least in China), which
really kind of surprised me in that they specifically claim it didn't
come in until the 19th or 20th century.
Kind of surprising; I would have thought at least some nalbinding,
etc. might have made its way into the trade routes.
