In The Cable Light

Nothing is so lovely as a candle light a late night. This time it is cable light - cabled knitting fitted to a jar.

An easy and quick knit and it make such a great effect when there is light in the jar.

The grey one is a gift for a friend. And I really hope she will like it.

The pattern is very easy and well explained.

You can fit one cover to almost any jar you have  - or a nice one you buy for a gift.

I am going to knit more of these. I really enjoyed the fact that knitting can be so decorative.

There is a idiom that say "See the light in the tunnel". Well, in my world it is "See the light trough the stitches"

I wish you a day in the light!!!

  7. Åååh, så deilig å lunt lys :)
    Mon tro om jeg kan strikke sånne i regnbuens farger.... konfirmasjon til våren.... OG: hvis vi får være ute, ville sånne lykter vært supre:)
    Og tema er regnbue!:)

    Men du? Glasset blir ikke veldig varmt, vel?

    Marit- klemM

    1. Takk Marit - høres veldig gøy ut i regnbuefarger!!! Glasset blir ikke mer varmt enn andre lysestaker med telys. Mange bruker gamle glasskrukker fra syltetøy og annet. Og de er jo mye tykkere. Tror det skal gå bra!! Lykke til - håper du legger dem ut når du er ferdig!!

  14. i think of how sunlight passes through forests --- i know this is a far-fetched comparison but the execution has an earthy feel to it. filtering the light, softening it, making the spark mellow and contained: it is light communicated with whim and metrical poesies. i applaud your creativity!
