We are exactly halfway through September. Before you know it, you’ll be sleeping with your socks on and grateful for the body heat of strangers when they rub up against you on the tube.
If braving the cold is too much for you, make your home feel so cosy you won’t want to venture out, with the Casamania Granny knitted pendant lamp shade (pictured), now available in the UK.
Made from thick wool sheared from sheep in the remote Alpine valleys of Tyrol and then knitted in Holland, these adorable hanging lamps come in two sizes and colours (off-white and raspberry). The wool is treated to make it fire resistant (phew) and repellent to moths and other insects that have a tendency to munch through knitwear.
Replace your dated chandelier with one of these crafty designs, add a regular light bulb, and see how it brightens your day.
