In the last few years, knitting and crocheting have made a real come-back. These are no longer old lady sports, and all kinds of type-A execs and supercool hipsters have knitting circles to prove it. When well done, yarn art is lovely. And Cai’s croched lights [2] are downright fabulous.

We were drawn like moths to these illuminated orbs yesterday at ICFF [3], which emerge from the same design team as the deer head trophy lamps [4] Jill raved about after last year’s show. Essentially, the Stocking Lamps are clear spheres containing a lightbulb on a cord fed down through the top, around which fit perfectly gorgeous crocheted cozies. Isabelle Rolland, one of the Cai [2] design trio, gave us a demo on how the covers can be unbuttoned and swapped out for new colors and patterns. We could gush about these for days.
