Knitted Lampshades

Usually most say knitting is not the most economical way to get what you want.In this case , I think not. If these appeal,get out the 9-12mm  and your chunky yarn and go-

Available online for a mere £215-475.

As reported in Daily Candy London this am :  “Made from thick wool sheared from sheep in the remote Alpine valleys of Tyrol and then knitted in Holland, these adorable hanging lamps come in two sizes and colours (off-white and raspberry). The wool is treated to make it fire resistant (phew) and repellent to moths and other insects that have a tendency to munch through knitwear. ”

If i put these around the house- it may be the final straw ( or strand ) for my family.

  1. Ed likes them. In an ironic way I think (hope?) . Reckon we could whip some up in quiet moments at shows and make lots of money from them?

  2. I was just in a meeting yesterday with a large Home Retailer here in the U.S. and I was looking at a bunch of style boards and those lampshades were on it — yeah, one of the hot new items in the resurgence of the folkart look. Too funny!

  3. Now there’s an idea for my spare ball of Bigga yarn!
