I picked up a couple of tiny glasses in the charity shop this morning for 10p each with the idea of crocheting round them...this is what came out!  They're done in the granny stripe stitch (which I first saw on attic 24 and then worked out for myself) in the round using vintage or charity shop yarns and a 3mm crochet hook...I think they're soo pretty!
