    Six-sided Hammock

    Did ya'll see THIS???? This is an article posted in Core 77 Design Magazine.

    Here's the Reader's Digest version if you don't want to read the whole article:




    Goofy!!!
    "Pips"
    Mountains have a dreamy way
    Of folding up a noisy day
    In quiet covers, cool and gray.

    Surely, God could have made a better way to sleep.

    Surely, God never did.

    Yes, they wove it on site as a one-day workshop in knot-tying and design.

    I was just thinking it looks like a spiders web. Looks like a nice family hanging area.

    Fortunately, Shug might actually know where to get one...


    Interesting design, for sure. Don't know if it'd be too comfy to sleep in, though.
