Supply List: Tenergy LED Lamp for Knitting and Reading

Tenergy LED Crafting Lamp

Tenergy LED Crafting Lamp

Hello! Heather here with a little notions aside. I know we all have our gadgets we love and I wanted to drop in and tell you about my latest discovery – better lighting! Working on a knitting project without enough light can be a real problem. If I can't see well enough I might miss a stitch or worse yet drop a stitch.

Enter my new best friend the Tenergy LED Lamp. Look at these well-lit stitches!

Bright stitches! Better lighting makes for better knitting.

Ahh, simply magical! 

Now, I need to be upfront here and let you know that Tenergy contacted me and asked if I'd like to try this new LED lamp because they thought it would be great for me and my fellow knitters. I don't normally do product reviews unless it's something I have tested and l would really think people would benefit from knowing more about and therefore I normally turn down offers like the one I received from Tenergy. BUT! After reading the email I realized that I already have this lamp's little sister on my desk! I use it every day and I love it.

The Tenergy lamps are awesome because they have all LED panels that give the light. That means it's not a big awkward fluorescent light and it's also not hot like a traditional incandescent bulb. The light panel can give a ton of coverage without the downsides.

LEDs come in a wide range of brightness and color ranges and the nice thing about these Tenergy lights is that they have a control panel that allows you adjust the brightness. That means you can use it on a really bright setting if you're working on a project during the daytime and need a bit more light or if you're working on a dark colored yarn like something with a lot of black or brown in it. You can also adjust to something a bit lower light if you're knitting in the evening or watching a movie with your honey and still want to knit but not light up the whole room. Pretty great.

The Tenergy lamps can also adjust to give you a color temperature based on what your needs are. Now, I know you're like... What's color temperature?! Yeah, that's when light ranges from something bluey-white (cool) to something a bit more orange/yellow (warm).  Look here:

Pretty neat, isn't it? I use the cooler light when I really need to see my stitches and concentrate and I use a warmer setting when I just want to relax and knit. Generally speaking cooler light provides a brighter white for more clarity and a warmer light is there when you're ready to de-stress and put your feet up. All of these settings can be fine-tuned to your liking right on the touch panel.

But wait -- there's more! The Tenergy Floor Lamp that I'm using in the photos is actually a 2-in-1 design. It can be converted from a floor lamp to a desk lamp in just a couple of minutes!

Yes! I love that! Use the full-size lamp in the living room while you're knitting and then shorten it up to use on your craft table for quilting the next day. Genius! I'll be honest here and say that I used mine on the dining table to work a jigsaw puzzle a few weeks ago. The chandelier wasn't giving me enough detail so I adjusted this one and we taught that puzzle who was boss.

I really do like this new Tenergy LED Lamp and am happy that I can share it with you because I think you'd like it, too. It makes me wonder if I would have bought that original desk lamp I have if this brilliant design had been available then? I might have just bought this version since it is double duty but definitely love that I have two now. 

If you need a new crafting light I am happy to recommend the Tenergy LED Floor Lamp Desk Lamp. Find it on Amazon.
