    First hang today, in my DIY, with pics

    Hi All,
    So I decided to make good use of the last day of my spring break today, and added the knotty mod to my DIY double 1.9. It's a little chilly here in PA today, but with my foam pad between the layers, my back was toasty. I'm using the pattern/template for a double layer from DIY Gear Supply. I got my ripstop with a coupon at Joann's. Amsteel, webbing and marlin spike aluminum tubes from DIY Gear Supply as well. I had enough fabric left over for a double ended stuff sack that is really more of a storage bag than a fully-compressed stuff sack. I could probably get it stuffed to half the size in the pictures, but I don't want it to get too crushed unless I'm actually out on a trip where I need to save space in a pack.

    Thanks to HF members Fish and TZ Brown for some DIY advice this morning. I took your suggestions, and stopped by Joann's again for $2 worth of elastic for the Knotty mod I put in early this afternoon, as well as to Knotty himself for the idea. I had the rest of the materials on hand already.

    Pics as promised:

    So here are the pics as mentioned above. The weight is shown in ounces, and is about 1/3 of the tent I carry, so this is a big improvement. Next projects include a bug net and a winter-size tarp and some side and/or ridgeline pockets.

    Length was 10.75 feet before I whipped the end, width is about 57" or the full 60" fabric width minus side seams. I'm 6'3", and it felt short at first, but I needed put on the structural ridgeline and fine tune the suspension angles and now it fits well.

    Impressive. That looks like some really good sewing work.

    Thanks for the compliments. I'm new to the hammock, but not the thread injector.
