Did you try experimenting with different weights of fishing line? Some types/weights work better than others for crafts.
Ive worked with tanned hide and string liqourice (not together!). I love trying different things to see the result.

I would love to see the end result of your project- I hope you post when you figure it out  Wink

My mum made a king size blanket Shocked by crocheting a long enough chain to go over the bed and then just kept adding rows as she had time. It took forever and towards the end was very difficult to handle but it came out fabulous. She used a combination of "v" stitches and waffle weave to make  it look like alternating blocks.
We used to joke about the "green monster" next to her chair that kept growing but never moved Cheesy but when it was finally done it was well worth it.

I'll swap your beige walls for my green ones any day! Are landlords colorblind?
That said, I know how depressing it gets to have bland walls.
How long do you intend to stay there? That may affect the amount of $$$ you want to spend.
If you can, decide where your mirrors will go and get them up - not only are they a great way to reflect light but it will also feel more like "your space". (also mirrors leaning against a wall can easily break and picking shards of glass out of carpet is no fun, and takes ages Cry) Also re-arranging your furniture may make a big difference.

Adding color in the knicknacks or soft furnishings also works especially well against a boring wall color. Many agents advise people to paint their houses beige before selling as it is a softer colour than white and you can add almost any other colour in furnishings and still have it look OK.
You can also get cheap blank canvasses at many dollar store and it could be a cheap easy way to personalise things, especialy if you and a friend have a paint party Wink
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Granny mystery on: June 16, 2010 12:47:02 AM
I've often wondered about it. I know they were made in Victorian times and being a fairly easy pattern I think they may go back to the start of crochet,whenever that may be Wink!  I know that crochet became popular in the 18th century and was also refered to as "shepherds knitting" but who knows what went before?

I thought as a child that the squares were called granny squares because old grannies with poor eyesight could make them easily Cheesy. They are also so useful to use up all the bits of yarn left over from other projects - a very frugal and "granny-ish" thing to do in my mind. The local old-age home near my house always had rows of elderly ladies rocking on the front verandah crocheting and gossiping! Goodness knows what became of all those squares they made! I know they were a better source of news than the newspaper Cheesy
