This might appeal to some knitters:
http://www.thegrommet.com/powercap-hands-free-flashlight

Looks a little better than a strap-on "headlight"

quote:
PowerCaps are cotton baseball hats with patented, ultra bright LEDs cleverly tucked under the brim for easy on/easy off, hands free light. Created by avid outdoorsmen at Illinois based PantherVision, these high quality, comfortably fitting caps have built in bulbs that provide visibility for distances up to 42 feet. The lights can also be seen from a mile away, and with battery life up to 43 hours, these hats have long lasting power that live up to their name.


I have no connection to the makers - just thought the hats might be useful for crafters

I have one of those hats -- haven't tried it for knitting but I think I would get a crick in my neck keeping it pointed down. We got them for camping thinking they may take the place of flashlights when walking around the campground, but not so much -- at least for us.

We have headlamps for hiking and snowshoeing after dark but always crack up when we have to wear them because we had originally gotten some for the dogs to wear around their necks at night at home. Those are called Pup Lights so of course now ours are too. We live in the mountains and have a very large, steep backyard. One of our dogs is very active and we'd look out the window and see this little light bobbing and running around the yard. Its very funny but a good way to keep track of him.

I really like my strap-on headlight, but I wear it around my neck instead of on my forehead. That puts the light on my knitting or book or whatever and not into anyone's eyes.

I used it a lot when I had to wait picking up children (teens actually) from evening classes or activities.
