I try to keep my designs current and up to date, but sometimes it is hard to know just what will be the next big trend (like cowls and shrugs.) I have a few ideas I have been playing around with, and I would like to ask your opinion on them.

Glove-less Finger Covers. I think I will make a little matching bag to carry them all in when you are not wearing them. What do you think?
And then, being a threadie, I am always looking for ways to use thread in my designs, even the wearables. Since I also love vintage, I thought, why not use a beautiful old doily as a bridal veil? Can't you just see a bride wearing something like this?

And for fun, you can place it even lower, and you have a cute but elegant crocheted beard, like the ones that were so popular last winter.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, the most important thing you should know about these designs is:
