Cool Stuff: Knitted and Crocheted Lightbulb Covers

You guys know I'm a sucker for knitted and crocheted housewares ...

So of course I love these sweet light-fitting covers from Northern Ireland design studio Electricwig. Made to be slipped directly over a low-wattage compact fluorescent bulb and stiffened with sugar water to hold their shape, they'll soften the light's glare and add a touch of delicacy and femininity to those utilitarian bare-bulb fixtures.

They're 8,925 yen (or about $84) apiece from Trico, or 11 pounds sterling (about $22; orange, lime green, and brown only) from Thorsten van Elton.

Or, you know, you could just get out the knitting or crochet needles and make your own ;-)

Leah... i just saw something similar on a rectangular ikea lamp. it was one of those hacker things where everyone did something to the same lamp. someone crocheted a cover!
