I made more fishnets... I know, I know! I need an intervention! They're so much fun though, I can't help it!

My two latest creations:

I like to call this pair the "Moulin Rouge" set. They're actually more fingerless-gloves than my usual design-- with a hole for the thumb and all. I did a cuff with fun-fur type stuff and then did a double-layered ruffle at the bottom. And, of course, I had to pose with my second favorite hat-- the red top hat! Because red top hats make everything cooler. Smiley


This pair is much closer to the ones I normally make-- except for the whole pink thing. These also have a longer cuff than I usually put on them, and of course! had to be trimmed in black eyelash yarn. (Modeled with my first favorite hat-- my black fedora) I think they're too cool!

I love the fishnet pattern. I personally would prefer it without the fun fur, because I like to stay low-key, but those are really cute!

Yeah,these were actually the first two I ever made with the fun fur-- and while I love fun fur, I think I prefer my plain ones for day-to-day wear. The fun-fur ones are more.. special occasion? I guess.  Grin

Liz, you never cease to amaze me with your cool-ness.  I really like the pink ones!

P.S. I'm still loving the ones I bought from you.

Yeah, I'd keep the pink ones if they weren't... uh... pink! LOL! But I'm glad you like the ones you have!  Grin
