As I clean the house and get lunch ready for my daughter I often day dream about drinking a double IPA with friends, what I want to make for dinner, the greek homework I have to do (more like stressing over) and how I would rather be in my hammock. Today, instead of day dreaming I had a hammock design idea. See the graphic below. I used googles sketch up to create this Gathered end hammock. The pockets on each end are supposed to be where your head and feet go so you can lay strait in the hammock. I have limited skills with CAD type programs so use your imagination and pretend the fabric (ripstop or any other type of light weight material) would hang.
It could be thought of as a beach hammock/ gathered end. I was trying to accomplish some way of taking the gathered end hammock and making it so I could lay straight across it, I dislike the feeling placed on my knees to my feet with my gathered end hammock and when its pulled tight its feels to tight on my shoulders. What are you thoughts, reactions, advice? has this been done before? I look forward to your response.
