On Friday I whipped my 60x126 tablecloth, made my whoopies, and headed out to the woods with them and my tree straps. I was very pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I felt in this simple hammock. I could leave it open like in the picture, or pull the flaps over me to block out the sun. It felt great - sun out of my eyes, and a cool breeze starting to blow over me. :-)
Today I was given a hammock stand, and set up the hammock. It was more difficult to get it adjusted. What struck me the most was that the hammock didn't have that openess... it tended to wrap around me and seemed less 'roomy'.
When I first whipped the ends, I folded each end differently. On end was zig zag folded like an accordian, and on the other end I tried it in halves, fourths, etc. Before I tried the hammock stand I had changed both ends to have the zig zag fold.
Anyway ... I wonder if the type of fold on the end makes much difference ... or if my experience is due to the way it hangs in a hammock stand.
