    I like the use of crochet for this lamp. Note, however, that the tool for crochet is not referred to as a crochet “needle,” but a crochet HOOK.

    I love the price of the Grono set but not the harsh light. This is a beautiful solution! It almost makes me want to learn to crochet. ;)

    This hack has given me so many ideas! I am going to combine this concept with arigumi-stly animals to make a kid’s lamp. So excited!

    @Pacific NW Blogfan: You just need to learn how to crochet ;)

    Adrianne, people crochet torn lengths of plastic bags with a great effect if you choose good colours!

    Can this be done with other materials, like decorative paper? Just to add variety to texture.

    I can’t crochet, but this looks great. :-)
