Crochet retro lampshade

A few eagle eyed observers pointed out that my brother in law (who was wearing the Viking hat that I made him) was sitting next to a rather unusual lamp......

It's true and I'm excited to say that it was one of my first foreys into the relm of making gifts by hand at christmas.

So here with a staring role in it's very own post is the crochet lampshade that I made for my lovely sister in law (my very first blog follower). 
It's really easy to make.  Just make 5 granny squares and join them together to make what looks like a tissue box holder.  Then slip this cover over an simple IKEA table lamp and finish off with a little bit of a fancy finish around the bottom.
