Wall Hangings
I've knit several "wall hangings" (pieces from afghan patterns I like, etc.) Does anyone have suggestions on how to hang them so that they look decent? (But I'm all thumbs when it comes to building a frame.)

Thanks for any thoughts.

Depending on their size and weight, you could sew the top edge around a dowel and let them hang. If they want to curl, maybe you could slide a piece of straight wire down through the sides? Just off the top of my head.

OK, Ingrid forgot the last step, which is "take a picture of it and post it here when you're through". That's a neat idea- I would love to see it!
