Fisherman's Lamp

This year we stayed in our own country to celebrate vacation once again, due to covid. We booked a couple of vacation houses in different places and went from one to another each week. 

After two weeks in a vacation I always long to go home, because of all the ideas I come along while visiting other places. Sounds familiar, or is this just me? This year I saw fisherman's lamps at various places and after the first time I already knew I wanted to make one. 

We came back a couple of days ago and I couldn't wait to start. Lots of laundry had to be done, but between loading my washing machine and folding wash after drying, I started with my lamp. Today I finished it! Very happy with the result!

For now it will stay on the porch, because it gives it a summery vibe and it still is summer, isn't it? But in a couple of weeks I will start to decorate the porch for fall and then I will move the lamp to our bedroom. The bedroom is totally white, it will fit in perfectly.





Pattern: made up myself while crocheting

Yarn: Paris White by DROPS

  4. Now you've got me interested in fisherman's lamps! Do you think Elpelut originated it? There was a Japanese American sculptor Ruth Asawa who made amazing knit wire sculptures that are similar in form, look her up!

    1. I also had to look up Elpelut, haha. I don't think Elpelut originated them, because friends of my parents had lamps like these in their house when I was young , but maybe Elpelut revived them. I saw the lamps hanging in two different yarn store shopping windows, though without mention of the designer.
