The designer of this tree worked the light strand with every couple of stitches and that this pattern is worked with the light string and yarn held together as if you were working with 2 strands of yarn. This is certainly a new technique for me and I must find these lights and try this for myself.

I had never heard of this type of Fairy Light string before. After a little searching, I found that a few of my local hardware and mass merch stores actually carry them. Its been a while since Ive done any serious shopping for Christmas lights. This is such a clever idea, and would make a wonderful hostess or special friend gift. Especially if you leave the tree undecorated so the recipient can use it as they please.

These are adorable and are very easy to work with. There are some draw backs though. First although there is no plug in, there is a battery box dangling off the end of the cord of lights. And two, it eats up batteries like crazy. I suggest you use rechargeable batteries on this.

Honestly, this yarn does not look remotely super chunky! But I will take her word for it. Wow, this is such an inventive and cute novelty Christmas decor crafting idea! I always see these lights at Michaels and have dreamed of coming up with my own way of using them. The portability is what I LOVE- no cords and no outlets needed. I can just hang it on my wall!
