corking
 n.— «I’ve been a little obsessed with the idea of spool knitting lately, having first seen it in action in the wonderful 200 Braids book. This type of knitting, sometimes called corking, is familiar to Girl Scouts and schoolkids the world over, and yields thin, hollow tubes of knitting. They can be used for trim, of course, but I’m convinced there’s more uses lurking in the back of my brain. The simplicity of the whole thing is just so cool to me.» —“Spool Knitting! Why do I love it so?” by Diane Gilleland CraftyPod (Portland, Oregon) Feb. 28, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
