Crocheted Vases

Untitled

The crocheted vases for my aunt are done!  I had quite a few projects going at once, and now a couple of them are finished or close.  I finally feel like I'm making some progress!

For the crochet specifics, I used Aunt Lydia's size 3 thread with a D hook, and improvised the designs as I went to fit the vase.  In the past I've crocheted over jars which got narrower to the top, so I could just crochet a bit tighter to hold it in place.  But with these it got a little tricky at the top because the vase gets slightly larger.  So to prevent the thread from sliding down at the top I put a few dabs of hot glue which worked perfectly!

They were quite easy and fun to do, but I must say, they were a bugger to photograph!  I still don't feel like the pictures are true to life and the pictures make them look a little wonky in places...  But whatchyagonnado?

I think they turned out cute, and now I'm off to block a doily!  I'm crossing things off my To Make list left and right!
