What is That Thing?

Hanging Vase Holder

I made a few afghans when I was a teenager. That's quite awhile ago. I  remember never being able to get them started, but as soon as the first few loop de doops were made I was on my way.  Recently I got a hankering to relearn how to do some basic crocheting so....bought the book at Amazon, and the hooks from an Etsy store, and the bookmark came from an Etsy store, and the cheater reading glasses at Dollar Tree. Yarn - was an old T-shirt nightie that was becoming holy. I did not really set out to make this particular thing. At first I thought... Oh, maybe this is going to be a hat. Then it became obvious that it wasn't turning into a hat. Then I thought maybe it's going to be something for a guy (don't ask!). Then I realized that I could fit a glass vase into it, and so now it is becoming a hanging vase holder. Although, I may very well take it apart and turn it into something else. Never can tell!

I won't tell you what "that thing" looks like because it would be X-rated, but it made me laugh anyways!

I know it will look a lot different with the vase and flowers in it ;-)

LOL So funny you should mention that thing as guy thing...We were talking about that exact thing at work the other night! I have no idea how the subject came up!

Great attempt at crocheting! Flowers would look great! Quite creative actually!

It's fun when projects evolve into something unexpected.
Thanks for the big laugh.
