As some of you who read this blog know, I've been a little obsessed with bamboo lately. Not the needles, the fiber. I acquired some at Habu Textiles in NYC a few months ago and it's been sitting in my odds and ends box waiting for me to come up with something.

Well, I have.

here's just a tiny bit - more to come when I work out the design a bit better...

It's an idea I've had for years - a knitted lampshade - and I know they're out there. I want mind to be a complete lamp, self contained, something you could hang several of at a party for an amazing lighting effect, or take to the park for a nice evening pic-nic, etc. The bamboo has the heat resistance I think I need - especially with a VERY small light bulb. More to come later!

I also have some spun pine fibers from Habu. I've been thinking they'd be terrific in my Universal Chair Seat - I'm working up a new lace pattern - "stalk of bamboo" - in which to work the seat up. Maybe I should make a pine lace?

Here's the chairseat in nylon twine using the Stalk of Wheat pattern
