Let There Be Light!

As you may know, I've been spending a lot of time exploring the great outdoors with my man. It has been so amazing to hike our state's myriad trails, sample some of our stunning national parks, cook on a toasty campfire and sleep under the twinkling stars. Being in nature is a real pleasure for me and experiencing it with someone I absolutely adore is definitely a bonus. That being said, our outdoor travels have lacked one very important feature: the ability to work on my crafty endeavors at night! Let's face it, trying to knit, crochet, weave or spin by a campfire is not exactly ideal. The light is beautiful, but it's not practical for working on any crafty to-go projects. Not to mention the fact that embers and yarn are not a really good combination. Not to worry though, I've come up with the perfect solution to my problem...

Meet my new trusty headlamp!

Let There Be Light

My handsome boyfriend, Steve, understands that a crafty girl has got to create, no matter the circumstances. So, he procured this headlamp for me. I road-tested it on our last camping trip. Works like a charm!

Oooooo, I do this too! We like to sit out in the backyard at night and visit with our neighbors. I first tried the lightup hooks so I could crochet in the dark, but they didn't emit enough light. So I commandeered my husband's headlamp. Fortunately, the neighbors are now used to it and no longer make fun of me!

Great Idea! I will have to find one of those.

Awesome! Gator used to use one of these for painting miniatures (he's a wargamer) but abandoned it once he got a better desk lamp. I may have to commandeer it for my own nefarious crafty uses! :)

Very cool and you can pull it off ;). I like the "handsome boyfriend Steve" line.
