HEN
a(mu)
meaning: edit, knit, book

編集者 == henshuusha == editor
編み物 == amimono== knitting, web 


Left radical is 'thread' (糸), right radical is a Non-General Use character that originally meant 'doorplate' (and still means that in Chinese). Its upper radical is 'door' (戸), and its lower element 'book/bundle of bound writing tablets' (冊). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Books bound with thread left at editor's door.'
