1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Window Treatment? on: November 12, 2006 09:49:57 AM
I need some original suggestions for a window treatment for this window:

The measurements are a very rough approximation of (I don't have anything to measure with right now) 4 by 6 feet. But I'm having trouble because of it's depth from the wall of about 2 inches:

I'm planning on doing this room with a bright, retro, almost kitschy mood. Something like what you'd see back in the 70's with funky designs, but also moderinsed with sleek, abstract, one-of-a-kind furniture. The colour scheme will be oranges, greens, and browns mainly, with splashes of other bright colours to keep it from being too frumpy.

The inspiration comes from a bag I made using vintage 70's fabric, but I don't have enough left to to curtains (I don't think, anyway):

(This is the best picture I have right now of the fabric--and you can't even see the brown!)

If you have ANY idea, help clue me in?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Old Navy Scarf? on: October 08, 2006 03:01:50 PM
I've seen this knitted (maybe crocheted...) scarf at Old Navy a few times. It's brown with pink flowers, and I'm pretty sure it's some sort of lace or openwork. However, being frugal little me, I figured I could make it myself, instead of spending the $16.50. (Yeah, the $16.50 which will probably end up being how much I spend on the yarn for the project anyway.) I couldn't find a picture of the scarf on their website, but I've seen it in two or three of their stores, and I was wondering if anybody who's seen it could tell me how to make it or link to a pattern, and if it's too difficult for someone who can barely make it past a garter stitch scarf?

Thanks in advance!
