lumpshade

I finished a test knit for saxarocks last week!  This was a new kind of project for me - a structural, felted lampshade.
 

I used the recommended yarn, Paton's Classic Wool and knit the 8" diameter lampshade.  Since I don't have soldering equipment, I followed the instructions to use wire and metal rings to construct the structure, but I think I might need to line it with something so it doesn't shrink inwards in the middle.




I had trouble keeping it straight, particularly because my floor, lamp base, and bulb socket are all crooked, in addition to my handmade lamp structure.  I tried to balance all the crookedness.
