This is my only crocheted (instead of knitted) vessel, and it's extremely sturdy. I think it would actually float, so I embellished it with shells and glass beads, rounds and leaf drops, that remind me of the sea. I love working with variegated colored yarn because I never know how it will look in the end. Surprises are fun! I'm not yet sure where this one will end up, perhaps in my Etsy shop.
