New Trends In Crochet Fashion

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.
First, is a new scarf idea. Skinny scarves have been very popular lately, so I thought why not go all out and make the skinniest scarf in the world? I call this my 'Uber-Super Duper Skinny Scarf':
 Of course, it is not really very warm, but that is easily remedied. Just make it really long, and wrap it multiple times around your neck:
 This example is about 15' long.
And of course, Fingerless Gloves have been extremely popular for a while now. I thought about doing some toe-less socks, but found that people are already making them and calling them yoga socks. So, I came up with this idea:

 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?
 Just imagine this attached to a lacy hat trimmed with delicate flowers!
 What do you think the groom would think if he saw his bride coming down the aisle wearing this?
But it might be a bit much for everyday wear, so I tried placing it like this:
 Doesn't it give her an air of mystery?
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.

Well, there you have them. I would love to hear what you think about these ideas; which one do you think I should release first?
 Oh, and I forgot to mention, the most important thing you should know about these designs is:

April Fool!!!!!!!

Although these were an April Fool's joke, they just might catch on! Happy Sunday!

LOL I don't know I thought the gloveless finger gloves were quite eye catching :) They kind of look like the old curlers my mom used to use LOL

You made me smile today, thanks!!

you had me in "stitches!" I almost fell for it,but then I am a jaded NYker,and not too many things get by me! I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your generosity and giving spirit..I have made several of your wonderful patterns,and hope to someday be able to crochet my first doily. I am not very good at math,and sometimes I get intimidated when I gaze upon such intricate and complex work,but you are such an inspiration,that I am getting closer to going through with it. Thank you
