    Try this diagram http://www.backwoodsdaydreamer.com/d...ock-suspension Also, Ive had really good luck using a piece of bent wire for a fid,(I use a piece of aluminum electric fence wire, just because I have lots of it on hand) and if you slightly fray the ends of the amsteel, you can hook the frayed end on the wire and pull it thru (its really easy once you get it down!) I had trouble with my whoopies when I started making them last year, but now its second nature---really easy to do!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.
