As soon as I finished it I undid it and started again. It was a great shape but at about eight centimetres tall it was a bit too petite for me.
The next night I made it again following the same sort of shape but changing the pattern to make mine bigger and a bit more useful.
I am really happy with it now. It stands up by itself and can easily hold a handful of pens or crochet hooks.
Last night at a bushfire forum I crocheted this Lace Vase.
Before the forum began a lovely middle aged woman sat down next to me and asked me what I was making. I went into a bit of detail showing her the picture and talking about the pattern. Little did I know at that time that she was to be the key note speaker for the night Joan Webster.
I am pleased with the shape and size of this vase but I will need to have another go in a sturdier yarn as it falls over with anything heavier than a crochet hook in it. Alternatively I might investigate some type of fabric stiffener.
